Every year, the ISN Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program brings essential teaching and training to some 14,000 doctors and healthcare practitioners in the emerging world. This Program supports the conceptual design of local and regional meetings in resource-low countries by contributing to the organization of the meeting and helping arrange faculty for the meeting. Oganized between the ISN CME Committee, the event organizer and the  ISN Regional Board, these courses establish a suitable scientific program developed to meet the needs of the local nephrology community.

Over 200 speakers, including the world’s leading authorities in the field, participate in this program on a voluntary basis. They are dedicated to sharing their knowledge with doctors, specialists and nurses in underserved parts of the world.

ISN selects and sponsors the travel of up to three expert kidney health professionals (nephrologists, nurses, technicians) to take part in the course. They give a minimum of two lectures each and participate in extra activities as hospital visits, ward rounds, etc.
