High quality research in renal physiology has a long tradition in Switzerland. The continuous education programme Translational Nephrology provides extensive insights into the basics of nephrology by studying the physiological and pathophysiological of kidney function in health and disease.
Starting with key articles and with clinical cases illustrating the translational aspects, the topic will be further explored by blended-learning including face-to-face sessions with module leaders and tutors, access to annotated online-resources, self-guided learning, presentations, and assessments.
At the core of the CAS/DAS in Translational Nephrology are the 5 e-learning courses that have been developed by the Health Sciences eTraining Foundation (HSeT) in collaboration with several specialists from NCCR Kidney.CH. The programme is intended for national and international graduates with a natural- and medical science background interested in basic- and clinical- renal research.
