22nd Budapest Nephrology School - EACCME accreditation
The 22nd Budapest Nephrology School (Nephrology, Hypertension, Dialysis, Transplantation, Nephropathology - from Pathophysiology to Bio-Psycho-Social Aspects) under the auspices of ISN, ERA-EDTA, IFKF, ISP and RPS will be traditionally held between 26-31 August, 2015 with the participation of distinguished international faculty.
One of the best known refresher courses on nephrology has attracted many young physicians from Europe and around the world representing 65 countries during the past decades.
We continue with the successful initiatives (like My Most Interesting Cases presented by the faculty and My Most Interesting Cases presented by the participants, Poster and Wine discussion) to further encourage the lively and fruitful interaction among the participants themselves, as well as between the participants and the faculty members.
We have also implemented some changes. This year we put special emphasis on nephropathology. We devote a whole day to discuss what is the most important in nephrology practice from the development in renal pathology.
We are pleased to inform you that the 22nd Budapest Nephrology School was granted 27 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
European Accreditation is granted by the EACCME in order to allow participants who attend the above-mentioned activity to validate their credits in their own country.
