There are a few legendary nephrology education experiences:
- The Brigham’s Board Review Class
- Renal Pathology at Columbia
- ASN Board Review (classically in San Francisco, but now ensconced in Chicago)
- University of Colorado Electrolyte Review in Aspen
I have not gone to enough of these but each of them belong on your nephrology bucket list. The Aspen Electrolyte Review has morphed from a deep dive into electrolytes to a broader scope. This summer it looks like a great curricula focused on AKI, CKD and transplant. Two NephMadness alumni, Sarah Faubel and Lakhmir Chawla, are among the speakers, as is PBFluids Hero Robert Schrier.
I’m not sure I’m going to be able to make it but I’m going to try (It is really close to the dates of my second year renal pathophys teaching responsibilities). The conference looks awesome. They have mornings off to hike and enjoy the mountains.
Aspen in the summer and nephrology CME. What could be better? (And don’t say Aspen in the summer without nephrology CME). Check it out.
Disclosure: I met course director, Isaac Teitelbaum at the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis meeting and he offered me free registration if I’m able to go. No payment was sought or offered for this post.
