Fundamentals of Renal Pathology [In-Person]

Course Description

This program is an introduction or a refresher for renal pathology, covering the classic pathologic changes recognized in diseases of native kidneys as well as renal transplant pathology. A blend of on-demand lectures and in-person laboratory sessions provide ample opportunities to ask questions and discuss cases with expert renal pathologists. Participants are provided with computers uploaded with digitized, whole-slide images (virtual slides) of biopsies of key diseases. Whole-slide images of mystery cases allow participants to test their mastery of the program material. All workshop cases are accompanied by clinical summaries and images from immunofluorescence and electron microscopy. World leaders in renal pathology provide attentive interaction, discussion, guidance, and interpretation of pathologic findings.

Space is limited to 100 participants.

Course Objective(s)

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