The course will help you:

  • Identify key principles when you are preparing kidney biopsy material, reviewing different staining techniques and understanding their purpose

  • Use newly-gained information on acute kidney injury, autoimmune renal disease, diabetic kidney disease, genetic renal disease, hepatorenal syndrome and pregnancy-related renal disease to gather pathophysiologic mechanisms and apply them when managing your patients
  • Make use of the latest knowledge about kidney pathology to better manage your patients.

The program starts on January 1st, 2018. It includes over 40 recorded online lectures and 12 live monthly webinars. To get the certificate, you are required to attend all the live webinars, pass several short quizzes and a final exam.
