Well recognized medical complications and recommendations for optimal care will be discussed. Both case discussions and the Audience Response System will be used to promote your education.

The material will be presented in several formats including lectures, case based workshops and interactive sessions that will include the use of the Audience Response System in which Nephrology and recertification board type questions will be used to highlight important clinical issues of diagnosis and therapy. Most days there will also be several “Meet the Professor”sessions at lunchtime, which will allow attendees to meet in smaller groups with members of the faculty. Your learning environment will be distraction free.
