Session Description

NephJC is an online journal club hosted twice a month and used by nephrologists around the world. A third of fellows describe using NephJC as a study source, and more than 40% of users rank it "very effective." This session brings some of the magic of NephJC to ASN Kidney Week. Presenters review the highest-impact medical literature in nephrology, drawing from recent publications and dissecting the research questions and methods of each study.

ASN thanks NephJC for assistance with this session.
