Sign up for the European Renal Pathology Course 2015 in Amsterdam
The 9th European Renal Pathology Course will take place in Amsterdam from June 9-12, 2015. This four-day course has been designed for pathologists, nephrologists, pediatric nephrologists and residents in these specialties. CLICK HERE for more information.
The first three days will be dedicated to native renal diseases, with special attention to the newest insights in renal pathophysiology, clinical nephrology and renal histopathology. Clinical and pathology presentations will be alternated with a fully digitalized slide seminar – all participants will have a laptop computer at their disposal to study biopsies with virtual microscopy, immunofluorescence and electron microscopy in an integrated fashion.
The fourth day of the course will be devoted entirely to the challenging field of renal transplant pathology, including background information on transplant immunology and clinical and pathological aspects of acute and chronic allograft dysfunction, again alternated with digital transplant slide seminars.
Throughout the course, the emphasis lies on the recognition of histological patterns, in combination with clinical symptoms in order to establish the diagnosis. Characteristic cases as well as more complex and rare cases will be covered.
After completion of the course, the attendants will be able to recognize the histopathological characteristics of both frequently occurring and rare renal diseases, and generate an appropriate differential diagnosis.
Since the start in 2006, the course has acquired a firm reputation among international pathology course offerings and has drawn attendants from over 20 different countries. A spectacular highlight is the course dinner, that traditionally takes place while cruising the famous Amsterdam canals.
The European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) has granted 18 European CME credits to this course. For further information and to register, CLICK HERE.
