ISN-ANIO CNC applications: deadline is now October 31st

You now have until October 31, 2018 to apply for the ISN-ANIO Clinical Nephropathology Certificate Program.

Open to all, this year-long online course covers the main principles and practices of nephropathology. If you are a pathologist or nephrologist living in a low-or lower-middle-income country, you get free tuition fees and priority access when you apply.

Looking to improve your skills in this field of study? The course will help you:

  • Identify the key principles in preparing kidney biopsy material, review different staining techniques and understand their purpose
  • Apply what you learn about different patterns of renal injury observed in histopathologic specimens in classifying syndromes of nephron injury and use this knowledge in your management of patients with renal disease
  • Use newly-gained knowledge of acute kidney injury, autoimmune renal disease, diabetic kidney disease, genetic renal disease, hepatorenal syndrome, and pregnancy-related renal disease to infer pathophysiologic mechanisms and apply them when managing your patients
  • Use the latest information about kidney pathology to better care for your patients.

The program starts in January 2019. It includes over 40 recorded online lectures and 12 live monthly webinars. To receive the certificate, you must attend more than 75% of the live webinars and pass a mid-year and a final exam.

Tuition Fees are $495.00USD. These fees are waived for trainees in MD, DNB, DM, or PhD programs from low-and lower-middle-income countries. You can complete and submit the application form online before October 31, 2018.

If you are a trainee, you must also submit proof of training and a letter of endorsement from your department chair. Any questions about the course or the application process? Contact Dr. Youssef Farag:

The ISN-ANIO India Committee builds on the expertise of ISN to bridge gaps in healthcare provision for kidney disease across India. The Committee was initiated by ISN, Indian kidney doctors and nephrologists of Indian origin living abroad to improve care for patients with kidney disease in India.
