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 bases of kidney function in health and disease.
Starting with clinical cases and key articles illustrating the translational aspects, the topic is further explored by blended-learning including face-to-face sessions with module leaders and tutors, access to annotated online-resources, self-guided e-learning, presentations and assessments.
At the core of the CAS/DAS in Translational Nephrology are 6 e-learning courses that have been developed by the Health Sciences eTraining Foundation (HSeT) in collaboration with several specialists from the former NCCR Kidney.CH (2010 - 2022) and from the Zurich Kidney Center ZKC. The programme is intended for national and international graduates with a medical or life science background who want to strengthen their knowledge and understanding of renal basic, translational and clinical pathophysiology and research.
