Renal Short Courses

The Department runs the following short CPD teaching courses:

These are short courses run over two or three days and each covers a wide breadth, ranging from the patient pathway to therapies to cutting edge science.

The course faculties are recognised experts in their field and are drawn from Britain, Europe, and the United States.

Applied Renal Physiology


This unique UK course integrates understanding of renal physiology and electrolyte and acid/base disorders that many find confusing.

The 3-day course features lectures from international physiology and nephrology experts, small group case discussions and workshops in order to ground participants in the pathophysiology and clinical management of electrolyte and acid/base disorders, hypertension and fluid management.

Who is this course for?

It is intended for both clinicians and scientists - trainees in Nephrology, General (Internal) Medicine and Intensive Care Medicine, Consultant Nephrologists and General Physicians, and those working in veterinary medicine and non-clinical grades.

The course will be run in May 2022 - exact date to be confirmed. If you would like to pre-register, please contact the Course Administrator at Med.Cfnevents@ucl.ac.uk 


Dialysis


This is a comprehensive 3-day course on dialysis and the management of patients with end stage renal failure.

The management of end stage renal failure by dialysis forms a central component of all renal units. However, it is often the least intensively taught component of nephrology training. This course is a thorough introduction to dialysis, from basics to new developments. Our expert faculty provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of dialysis and end stage renal failure.

Who is this course for?

The course is aimed at Specialist Registrars in nephrology, but is also of interest to other healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with chronic renal failure.

The course will be run in June 2022 - exact date to be confirmed. Please contact the Course Administrator at Med.Cfnevents@ucl.ac.uk if you would like to pre-register for the course.


Renal Transplantation

Our Renal Transplantation course covers clinical aspects of transplantation from donor and recipient selection, through surgical and medical management post-transplant.  Using a combination of interactive lectures and case-based discussions, our expert faculty will provide an essential update on transplantation as well as the opportunity to discuss practical aspects of difficult cases.

Who is this course for?

It is designed for trainee nephrologists and trainee renal transplant surgeons, and also  recently appointed consultants in these fields. Renal transplant nursing staff will also find the course valuable in their clinical practice.  

Date of the next course to be confirmed. Please contact the Course Administrator at Med.Cfnevents@ucl.ac.uk if you would like to pre-register for the course.
