The World Congress of Nephrology:

A Global Event to Advance Your Career and Worldwide Kidney Health

The ISN combines science, education, and networking opportunities in one outstanding annual event: the World Congress of Nephrology (WCN).

The congress features lectures and courses presenting state-of-the-art science and education on kidney care from international experts.

This essential yearly event allows you to contribute to scientific debate, share your knowledge, and develop informal networks to advance global kidney health, beginning with the expertise you take home to your region.

In line with the ISN’s core values, WCN’23 promotes equitable access and inclusivity.
