Fundamentals of Renal Pathology

Course Description

Nothing more closely approaches the soul of nephrology than does the renal biopsy. The techniques and interpretation of histopathology, however, receive inadequate attention in many training programs. This program is aimed at all who are interested in a basic introduction to renal pathology. The program authoritatively carries attendees through the classic renal pathologic changes seen in parenchymal nephropathies. The curriculum includes lectures and hands-on workshops. Participants are provided with computer stations and digitized whole slide images (virtual images) of key biopsies that are personally reviewed with the expert renal pathologists from the faculty, as well as whole slide images of unknown cases for self-testing your mastery of renal pathology. All case material is accompanied by clinical summaries and images of electron microscopy and immunofluorescence microscopy features. Attendance is limited to 100 people to maximize interactions with the faculty in workshop sessions.

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to: 1. describe normal renal anatomy; 2. discuss key diagnostic lesions for selected common renal parenchymal diseases; and 3. choose an overall approach to renal biopsy diagnosis and integrate all diagnostic information to arrive at a diagnosis.
