Continuing Medical Education Program

Continuing Medical Education Program

Through ISN’s Continuing Medical Education (CME) program, the Society brings essential teaching and training to some 14,000 doctors and health care practitioners in the emerging world annually. These medical professionals would otherwise be limited in their exposure to formal nephrology education.

Programs typically focus on:

  • General Nephrology
  • Prevention of CKD
  • Basic Science
  • Hemodialysis
  • Peritoneal Dialysis
  • Transplantation
  • Renal Pathology
  • Tropical Nephrology

Renal Registries

Prevention, dialysis and transplantation are three of the most requested CME topics. Virtually every national nephrology society in the world has partnered with ISN to offer prevention, dialysis and/or transplantation programs, and many do so on a regular basis.

ISN’s roster of just over 200 speakers includes most of the world’s leading authorities in the field. They participate on a completely volunteer basis.
