    54th ERA-EDTA Congress, Madrid

    ERA-EDTA logo

    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
