    6th Preston Renal Biopsy Course

    “The aim of this course is to provide introduction regarding indications, contraindications and complications of renal biopsy. We have real cases to debate whether doing a kidney biopsy would be useful or not. We also offer ‘’Meet the Expert’’ session and a session on treatment of common and uncommon outcomes of renal biopsy.

    The unique feature of this course is that over 2 days there are hands-on sessions in small groups.   You will have the opportunity to practice the use of ultrasound to identify and localize native kidneys of healthy volunteers as well as transplant patients. You will learn and experience the effect of correct positioning of the patient in this process as well. You will gain hands-on experience with the actual biopsy itself with our purpose-built renal biopsy simulator with real kidneys and also with a renal biopsy training mode”

    Renal Medicine Symposium

    Dates: Thursday 27th April 2017
    Location: Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh

    The programme and online booking are now available here.

      The past decade has seen huge progress in the field of nephrology with rapid translation of research findings into daily clinical practice. Examples of these innovations include new strategies for diagnosing acute kidney injury from laboratory data right across to targeted ‘precision medicine’ approaches in the management of glomerulonephritis. New medicines and approaches to immunology have facilitated kidney transplants in patients previously unable to find a suitably matched kidney. The spectrum of drugs used to treat patients with diabetes and kidney disease has increased dramatically.

    We anticipate that this symposium featuring internationally recognised speakers, will give insights into some of the major recent developments in renal medicine. The programme will be of particular interest to both trainee and senior nephrologists, immunologists, pathologists and transplant surgeons, as well as being informative for general physicians who are involved in the care of patients with kidney disease, such as diabetologists and acute physicians.  

    We hope that delegates come ready with questions and comments for the experts and we expect healthy debate of controversial topics.

    54th ERA-EDTA Congress, Madrid

    Dear Colleagues,

    We are strongly committed to have you come to Madrid in 2017 for the ERA-EDTA Congress.

    We hope the attractive scientifi c programme we are preparing will meet your expectations: the Scientifi c Committee, chaired by Peter Stenvinkel is working very hard to provide the latest cutting edge science, but, as always, we will also provide a wide range of CMEs on the fi rst day and the traditional clinical sessions will also be of extreme interest.

    One amazing aspect of Madrid is the city’s wide variety of cultural and leisure opportunities, enough to keep you entertained from the early hours of the morning until late at night. If you have not been to Madrid before you will have a hard time to select the best places to visit or things to do. The city has great museums with the best of both classic and contemporary arts, parks and friendly, charming and romantic corners.

    However, do not rush to visit all of them, after a couple of days we are sure you will -on purpose-, leave many things to see in Madrid to have an excuse to come back.

    We hope you enjoy the 2017 Congress as well as the city of Madrid in June, the month with the longest days!

    Dialysis 2017

    A comprehensive course on dialysis and the management of patients with end-stage renal failure

    This is a comprehensive course on dialysis and the management of patients with end stage-renal failure. The management of end-stage renal failure by dialysis forms a central component of all renal units. However, it is often the least intensively taught component of nephrology training. This course is a thorough introduction to dialysis, from basics to new developments. Our expert faculty provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of dialysis and ESRF through a mixture of informal lectures and workshops. The course is aimed at Specialist Registrars in nephrology, but is also of interest to other healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with chronic renal failure. For more information, please visit or alternatively please email the Course Administrator
