Typically, IPNA Teaching Courses are taught by a group of 3-5 Pediatric Nephrologists with outstanding teaching credentials and a wide range of knowledge in nephrology. The courses last 1-3 days and tend to occur in underserved areas of the world. They are usually attended by 50-200 people, including trainees, pediatric nephrologists, pediatricians, nurses and other health professionals. Other formats can also be proposed. Examples of course formats include hands-on training courses, regional courses that are repeated at different locations during the year, and small group retreats with an experienced IPNA tutor.

The "IPNA teaching course program" does not sponsor general meetings of regional, national or international societies or larger congresses on specific topics. Applications for pre-congress and post-congress courses are discouraged, but can be accepted if the congress takes place in a second or third world locations and if the course is clearly identified as an "IPNA-sponsored course". IPNA will only cover speaker expenses during the duration of the course. IPNA support cannot be used as a source of income for the main meeting. If speakers are invited to give additional lectures at the main meeting, the additional costs must be cover by the congress organization.

For courses two or more days in duration, the budget is limited to $7000 USD. For a one-day course, the budget is usually $5000 USD or less, but may be increased to $7000 USD if there is convincing justification. IPNA sponsorship can only be used to pay for travel and accommodation of speakers that are active IPNA members, for educational material, or to promote attendance of young trainees. Food and beverages cannot be included in the budget.

All applications should include a detailed budget estimation and the course program (a draft program is acceptable). Please note that all IPNA Teaching Courses are non profit.

IPNA strongly encourages disseminating the presentation materials to all of its members. This is easiest done by proving PowerPoint slides in a PDF format. Other materials (videos, audio materials, and other documents) can also be posted. After the course, please consider submitting them to the Teaching Committee Chair, Dr John Mahan.
