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.


It is with great regret that we have been forced to postpone the residential Advanced Nephrology Course due to take place at Corpus Christi in Oxford January 4-8th 2022, due to the rapidly emerging coronavirus Omicron surge.


We feel it is not tenable to organise a 4-day gathering of a substantial proportion of vital NHS trainees at a time when there is a high risk of coronavirus infection which could adversely impact individual health and healthcare delivery.

We still plan to deliver the course virtually and are currently gathering all presentations to be loaded on the Whova platform. Registration for the online course is still possible.

The online course will consist of recordings of the plenary sessions available from January 4th onwards, with a series of online extended Q&A sessions in the third week of January 2022. (Dates are January 20th, 21st and 27th, 2022). The exact timing can be consulted through the agenda of the meeting.  There will be no recordings available of the workshops. 

The Q&A sessions will be live but a recording will be added to the online platform site afterwards. All recorded sessions will be available for up to 5 months after the event via the online platform.
