COURSE INFORMATION

Course Description

Many practicing Nephrologists find it difficult to keep up with advances in the field.  The literature is too vast, and it can be hard to assess the clinical significance of what is read.

In this program, world-renowned experts and Harvard Medical School’s leading clinical faculty will provide a comprehensive review of important updates and advances in the diagnosis and management of patients with kidney diseases. The course will cover pathophysiologic and clinical issues in the major areas of nephrology, including:

  • Glomerular disease
  • Acid-base and fluid and electrolyte disorders
  • Hypertension
  • Management of chronic kidney diseases, dialysis, renal transplantation, and other renal complications.

Presenters will also discuss well-recognized medical complications and recommendations for optimal care.  This is an excellent opportunity to learn the latest best practices and enhance your clinical skills.
