Advanced Nephrology Course 2022

The highly prestigious annual UK Advanced Nephrology Course, organised on behalf of and fully supported by The UK Kidney Association (UKKA), remains an important learning event for trainees in the UK and further afield. Especially those preparing for the forthcoming specialist clinical exam (SCE) in nephrology in February 2022 and consultants wanting an update.

Overview

The course will be live in Oxford from 4-8th January 2022 and open to a limited audience of 60 participants. An online course will be available to all other delegates in the weeks following. 

The live, in-person course will consist of a series of plenary lectures with Q&A sessions and small, interactive group workshops. 

The online course will consist of recordings of the live plenary lectures with a series of online extended Q&A sessions. There will be no recordings available of the workshops. 

All plenary lectures will be recorded in Oxford and available five days before the start of the online event. The Q&A sessions will be live, but recordings will be added to the online platform site afterwards.
