    24th Budapest Nephrology School

    The 24th Budapest Nephrology School will be held this year from the 26th to the 31st of August. It is one of the most well-known refresher courses in the field of nephrology in Europe. It attracted many young physicians from 68 countries in the last two and a half decades.

    The School on Nephrology, Hypertension, Dialysis, Transplantation and Nephropathology is held under the auspices of ISN, ERA-EDTA, IFKF and ISP, with the participation of distinguished international faculty. The 30 faculty members represent 8 European countries, as well as the US and Japan.

    The 24th Budapest Nephrology School is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). Last year the 23rd Budapest Nephrology School was designated for a maximum of 27 hours of European external CME credits. For Hungarian participants the course is accredited by OFTEX for 50 credits.

    We continue with the successful initiatives such as “Meet the Professors” and the poster discussions, to encourage the lively and fruitful interaction amongst the participants and the members of the faculty. We also plan to implement some changes, including adding special emphasis on nephropathology. A full day will be devoted to the developments in renal pathology and its effects on clinical practice. This is made possible with the cooperation of the Renal Pathology Society.

    The participation fee (early bird: € 750, regular: € 900) includes: attendance at the nephrology refresher CME course, a certificate of attendance, coffee breaks and lunches, admittance to the 15th International Wine and Health Symposium, an evening cruise on the Danube, an organ recital at St. Stephen’s Basilica, a sightseeing tour with a visit to the Hungarian Parliament, the farewell reception, and last but not least Hungarian hospitality.

    Participants have free access to the electronic version of the “Nephrology, Hypertension, Dialysis, Transplantation from Pathophysiology to Bio-Psycho-Social Aspects” (L. Rosivall).

    UCL Renal Transplatation Course

    The course is designed to cover a wide range of clinically important topics in transplantation, from pre-transplant assessment of recipients, donor assessment and histocompatibility to transplant surgery and surgical complications, followed by management of post-transplant medical and immunological complications, recurrent disease and transplant pathology. It will be run over three days, with each day having a specific theme, so that the course can be attended in a modular fashion if desired. Some topics will be presented in a lecture format, whilst others will be presented in round-table group discussions with clinical cases covering the complex donor and recipient scenarios encountered in clinical practice.  The international faculty has extensive specialist and subspecialist experience in transplantation.

    Who it is for? 
    The course is designed for consultant and trainee nephrologists who have an interest in transplantation, and for recently appointed consultant and trainee transplant surgeons.
