Launch of ERKNet Postgraduate Curriculum in Rare Kidney Diseases
Postgraduate Curriculum in Rare Kidney Diseases
Dear ERKNet members, partners and friends,
We are pleased to announce the successful launch of the ERKNet Postgraduate Curriculum on January 1st, 2021. This first formalized educational programme offered by an ERN received overwhelmingly positive feedback. A total of 231 motivated students from 59 ERKNet healthcare providers in 22 EU countries have enrolled to the programme.
The ERKNet Postgraduate Curriculum is a 3-year structured online programme consisting of webinars and case-based eLearning covering the whole spectrum of rare kidney diseases. The webinars are presented twice a month by outstanding paediatric or adult nephrologists, nephropathologists and geneticists. Additionally, we offer eLearning cases that present scenarios of patients with rare kidney diseases, allowing the students to establish a diagnosis and choose appropriate therapeutic strategies. After three years, participants receive a certificate as "European Specialist in Rare Kidney Diseases".
