Overview

Key Topics in Nephrology CME

This online CME course provides a comprehensive, case-based review of challenging clinical problems. Intensive Review of Nephrology sessions are led by nationally renowned speakers who discuss the practical application of physiological principles to the management of clinical problems, particularly for board exam preparation. Highlights include:

  • Genetic testing for improved prognosis and therapy selection
  • Introduction to point-of-care ultrasound: fundamentals for acquisition and interpretation
  • Physical exam of the dialysis access
  • Expanding the role of SGLT2i in diabetic and non-diabetic kidney disease
  • Cases in cryptonephrology
