KIDNEYcon is an annual conference designed to provide updates in the latest advances in kidney care in a hands-on collaborative format. A key component of KIDNEYcon's mission is to build enthusiasm for the field of nephrology among residents and fellows. We also aim to facilitate collaborative research projects among participants of the conference. The conference is a platform for nephrologists and medicine trainees to interact with experts from across the nation and learn about and discuss recent advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease. The conference consists of Friday workshops targeted primarily to medicine residents, nephrology fellows and early stage nephrologists and a Saturday scientific and clinical conference with broader applicability.
KIDNEYcon 2018 will feature five workshops
1) The Kidney Biopsy Academy
2) Vascular Ultrasound for Assessment of Volume Status Workshop
3) Kidney Pathology Workshop
4) NephroTalk- Communication Workshop
5) Acid base, fluids/electrolytes Workshop
The Friday evening session will feature the KIDNEYcon Education Summit. This will feature talks focused on education innovations in medical school, residency, fellowship, and attending education.
