Distance Learning Courses: Renal WeekEnds Online 2010
Renal WeekEnds (RWE) 2010 provides a comprehensive overview of Renal Week 2009. The fundamental aspects of the basic sciences that have potential for future integration into clinical medicine are presented alongside translational research and novel clinical breakthroughs in renal medicine. Six disciplines of nephrology are presented by respected experts in this format: acute kidney injury, kidney transplantation, hypertension, end-stage renal disease, glomerular disorders, and clinical nephrology. State-of-the-art information is cogently gauged against the prevailing body of knowledge, in evidence-based fashion, and summarized succinctly. A personalized Q & A session with the faculty melds these intellectual discussions with the practicing nephrologist.
