Board Review Course & Update

Board Review Course & Update

An Interactive Board Preparation Course

July 25 - 31, 2015 | Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park, Chicago, Illinois

The Board Review Course and Update (BRCU) focuses on key information needed to prepare for the ABIM Nephrology Board Certification and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Examinations. ASN structures and schedules BRCU to maximize participants' readiness for these examinations. This course also provides a comprehensive and indispensable update for practicing nephrologists.

Each BRCU topic section and its applicable time allocation are patterned after the ABIM nephrology examination blueprint. Lectures, interactive case discussions, and panel Q&A sessions reinforce key knowledge in nephrology. Relevant physiology and pathophysiology blend with clinical discussions to keep participants engaged and provide essential updates and preparation.

BRCU participants receive complimentary access to streaming media and downloadable audio after the course.

Your BRCU registration fee includes an electronic syllabus via a mobile app and website. ASN will send an email to all registrants when the mobile app and website is available on Monday, July 13. The electronic syllabus allows users to view slides and take notes on each slide. You can print from website but not from the mobile app.

A printed syllabus is available for an additional fee of $125 (if ordered by Wednesday, July 1). The printed syllabus will contain the same slides as the electronic syllabus. Click here to view a sample page of the printed syllabus.
