Event Overview
Welcome message:

Many practicing nephrologists and physicians find it difficult to keep up with the rapid scientific and technological advances in renal care because medicine is changing at a faster pace than ever before.  As busy clinicians, we need to stay current in order to optimize patient care and improve outcomes.

We invite you to advance your knowledge by joining world-renowned experts and Harvard Medical School’s leading clinical faculty for a comprehensive review of nephrology.  The most important updates and advances in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases will be taught, including practical information that you can use now to provide exceptional patient care.

This CME course will address pathophysiologic and clinical issues in the major areas of nephrology, including:

Diagnostic testing

Acid-base and fluid and electrolyte disorders



Renal transplantation and complications

Management and individualized therapy of chronic kidney diseases and other renal complications

Presenters will also discuss well-recognized medical complications and provide specific recommendations for optimal care. This is an excellent opportunity to learn the latest “best practices” and enhance your clinical skills. Both new and returning attendees will benefit from the comprehensive curriculum.

Engaging Sessions with Prominent Experts and Colleagues

All sessions are led by prominent teachers and clinicians who provide specific recommendations for incorporating the latest updates into your practices.  Course material will be presented in a distraction-free environment through formats that include:

Innovative lectures

Valuable case-based sessions

Interactive workshops with the Audience Response System*

Helpful small-group “Meet the Professor” sessions to discuss challenging cases and ask pressing questions

Informal opportunities to share and exchange information and teachings with peers and fellow healthcare professionals

Why You Should Attend?

The latest nephrology knowledge, insight and teachings from leading authorities and clinical educators

A greater understanding of how to apply the latest tools and tests in your practice

Awareness of your strengths and areas for improvement

A network of like-minded professional colleagues
