ISN Sister Centers
The ISN has two flagship programs that provide educational support and guidance to centers in need within the developing nephrology community by pairing them with established centers to form supportive partnerships.
Don’t forget to pay a visit to the ISN Academy, which provides an extensive mix of over 8,000 pieces of multilingual presentations, guidelines, cases articles and webinars, and constitutes a reliable source to develop your skills and knowledge in nephrology.
For any question, please contact Sister Renal Centers Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The program comprises three levels of support providing the framework and funding to foster up to six years of collaboration if adequate progress is made.
The long-term goal is for the emerging center to become self-sufficient and able to provide better treatment and outcomes for patients with kidney diseases in their care.
After six years of improvement on the program, graduated centers are encouraged to support a third center within their region and therefore sustain the impact of their training and help other centers to develop.
The program is a joint partnership between ISN and The Transplantation Society (TTS) to help establish new kidney transplant centers and develop existing kidney transplant programs in emerging countries.
This initiative fosters partnerships between experienced transplant centers in the developed world (Supporting Centers or SCs) and new and developing transplant centers (Emerging Centers or ECs) in low-resource regions, providing a framework and funding for up to six years of collaboration if adequate progress is made.
After six- years of improvement on the program, graduated centers are encouraged to support a third center within their region and therefore sustain the impact of their training and help other centers to develop.
