The International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the American Nephrologists of Indian Origin (ANIO) are pleased to announce the 2014 Clinical Nephropathology Certificate Program (CNC).

Target audience:

Pathologists and nephrologists seeking training in the principles and practice of Nephropathology from all around the world are encouraged to apply. However, applicants from India, as well as low- and middle-income countries in all parts of the world, are given priority.

Program Objectives:

  • Identify the key principles in the kidney biopsy processing for LM, IF and EM. Review the different histopathologic techniques and their purpose.
  • Recognize different patterns of renal injury observed on a kidney biopsy, with respect to clinical presentation and impact on clinical management.
  • Use newly gained knowledge of specific renal syndromes or diseases (e.g., acute kidney injury, autoimmune renal disease, diabetic kidney disease, genetic renal disease, hepatorenal syndrome, pregnancy related renal disease) to infer pathophysiologic mechanisms and apply this to the management of patients.
  • Use updated knowledge of kidney pathology for better patient management.

Program Structure:

The CNC program includes over 40 recorded online lectures and 12 live webinars (one each month) made available over a one-year period. The course attendees are required to attend >75% of the live webinars and obtain a “pass” (a score of 75%) in a mid-year and a final exam in order to receive the certificate. In addition, there are two face-to-face conferences during the course for those able to attend. In 2014, these conferences will be held in India.
