The mission of the Nephrology Self-Assessment Program (NephSAP) is to regularly and continually provide a vehicle that is useful for clinical nephrologists who seek to renew and refresh their clinical knowledge and diagnostic and therapeutic skills. This journal consists of a series of challenging, clinically oriented questions based on case vignettes and a detailed syllabus that reviews recent publications. Taken together, these two parts should assist the individual clinicians in the self-assessment of their strengths and weaknesses in the broad domain of nephrology.
Distance learning provides educational opportunities through the use of technology for students, including physicians, to learn while not physically "on-site". This type of asynchronous learning is perfect for those who wish to take part in ASN's educational programs, but cannot attend the actual meetings.
