ISN Continuing Medical Education Program Committee

Every year, the ISN Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program brings essential teaching and training to some 14,000 doctors and healthcare practitioners in the emerging world. Organized between the ISN Program Chair, the event organizers and the regional committees, these courses establish a suitable scientific program developed to meet the needs of the local nephrology community.

Over 200 speakers, including the world’s leading authorities in the field, participate in this program on a voluntary basis. They are dedicated to sharing their knowledge with doctors, specialists and nurses in underserved parts of the world.

ISN selects and sponsors the travel of up to three expert nephrologists to take part in the course. They give a minimum of two lectures each. Prevention, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) dialysis and transplantation are among the most requested topics presented at CMEs. Virtually every national nephrology society worldwide has partnered with ISN to offer education programs on prevention, dialysis and/or transplantation.
