Course Description

A recent rise in diabetes, hypertension, and mineral metabolism disturbances, along with the aging factor, has seen a dramatic rise in patients with an array of kidney-related pathologies. The care for such patients should address the complexities resulting from the interplay of various organ systems and physician-bound considerations. With few nephrologists available in the primary care setting, it is up to other healthcare specialists to provide high-end patient care while translating new knowledge into meaningful improvements in health care outcomes for patients with kidney disease.

The Advanced Certificate in Nephrology is a step-up for primary care providers who are increasingly interacting with individuals with kidney-related disorders for instance renal failure, glomerular diseases, and infections of the urinary tract and kidney. The learning design of the course gives you a clinical perspective on the theory and consequently improves the clinical outcomes of your patients.

We at Medvarsity strive to equip every physician with the ability to fast-track their career and enable them to better serve the communities in which they practice.

Join us and let us impact healthcare through education.

Eligibility: General Physicians, Specialists, and Interns.

Course Validity: 7 months. There will be an extra charge for the extension of the course validity.
