Course objectives

  • Provide an update on Glomerular Disease 
  • Assess the classical and modern diagnostic methods
  • Discuss different approaches to glomerular diseases

Target audience

Pediatric Nephrologists, Nephrologists, Pediatricians, Medical , General Practitioners from Romania and Central and Southeastern Europe.

Educational needs, expected outcomes

Nephrologists need better ways, beyond histopathology, to phenotype patients with glomerular disease and  stratify the risk for progression to ESRD. Training programs to develop a core group of pediatric kidney specialists are needed. Creating registries of patients with glomerular disease, building a national network and joining international networks can aid in the ability to determine realistic estimates of disease prevalence and to improve therapy.


The official language of the course will be English.
