COURSE DECRIPTION
 

Renal medicine is one of the most challenging sub-specialties of medicine. Not all junior doctors will have the opportunity to work in a renal unit and even if they do they feel out of their depth. Nephrological problems can present anywhere. These patients usually have co-morbidities and associated higher mortality making their management even more challenging and you need to get it right the first time.

The Concise Renal Medicine Course covers a variety of topics relevant to practice and includes detailed case discussions. By the end of the course you will have developed your own strategy to manage complex patients and gain a better understanding of pathology, immunology and biochemical abnormalities.
