This is a two-day course on renal pathology for Specialist Registrars and Consultants in Renal Medicine. The course will start at 08:30 on 22 February 2018 and will finish by approximately 17:00 on 23 February 2018.

The course is specifically designed for nephrologists to teach them what they need to know about the renal biopsy and how it affects management. It is spread over two days and will involve some didactic talks from clinicians and pathologists, as well as small (informal) group discussions, in which we will present some clinical scenarios with their associated pathological material.

Finally, there will be a 'hands-on' session using virtual microscopy. At the end of the course, we will have a final quiz in which we show you some photomicrographs of renal biopsy specimens and ask you to come to a diagnosis. This will include some conditions which may not have been covered in detail during the course, but which you may be able to diagnose with your new critical analysis of renal pathology.
