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 are preferentially offered in areas of the world where pediatric nephrologists are scarce. 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 list of the Teaching Courses in 2020 is available here.

“I wish to thank IPNA for its wonderful support of our the recently concluded Paediatric Nephrology Conference and Worskhop in Neonanal Nephrology. We are immensely grateful to IPNA for the amazing contributions of our visiting IPNA paediatric nephrologists – Professors Abitbol and Bunchman.“

“IPNA TC in Dharan was a great success, participants liked the course design, topic, presentation and panel discussion. Similarly, the hands-on training was interesting to the participants and they were very happy to get involved in such training, first of its kind in Nepal. I look forward to working for IPNA in the future and to work together to serve the little kidneys in this part of the world.“
