Young Nephrologists Committee

In early 2007, the ISN created the Young Nephrologists Committee (YNC) to help better engage its talented younger members in shaping the future of the Society. The mission of the YNC is to evaluate and understand the needs of young physicians and scientists in order to develop education, research, professional development and leadership opportunities within the Society tailored specifically to their needs. The Committee consists of a core group of members, representing the various geographic regions of the ISN.


Members of the group develop coherent programs of activities designed to speak to all early career stage nephrologists currently in the ISN (approximately 20% of the society’s membership), as well as to attract new junior nephrologists to the society.

The ISN-YNC Mentoring Program

The ISN-YNC Mentoring Program fosters international relationships between nephrologists and nephrologists-in-training or more junior nephrologists/nephrology researchers. Interested in being mentored or being an ISN Young Nephrologists mentor CLICK HERE.
