UCL Applied Renal Physiology 2014 - course

3 April 2014

This is a modular course and includes the following sections: a primer in renal physiology, a 2-day course on fluids, electrolytes and acid-base and, finally, a 1-day cutting-edge science symposium. 

DAY ONE: Primer in renal physiology

This one-day module features a comprehensive overview of renal physiology for clinicians, particularly nephrologists.  It will also provide a thorough introduction for researchers entering the renal field.

DAY TWO: Part 1: Fluids, electrolytes and acid-base
DAY THREE: Part 2: Fluids, electrolytes and acid-base

This two-day module provides a comprehensive overview of fluids, electrolytes and acid-base for clinicians and will cover background physiology and clinical scenarios. Each day will feature small group interactive workshops.  These two days will particularly benefit those practising in nephrology, critical care or any acute medical specialities.

DAY FOUR: Frontiers in renal physiology

A highlight of this day will be the inaugural Oliver Wrong Lecture given by Professor Giuseppe Remuzzi.

Plus presentation of The Oliver Wrong Prize for Outstanding Contribution to Renal Physiology by a Junior Researcher.
