The 18th Budapest Nephrology School (Nephrology, Hypertension, Dialysis, Transplantation)
Semmelweis University
1094 Budapest Tűzoltó Street 37, Hungary 06 1 459-1500
Budapest, Hungary
It is my pleasure to invite you to the 18th Budapest Nephrology School organized by the Hungarian Kidney Foundation at the Semmelweis University, under the auspices of ISN and ERA-EDTA in conjunction with the 9th International Symposium on Wine and Health and on the occasion of the 6th World Kidney Day.
During this one-week program, our distinguished international speakers provide updates in nephrology, hypertension, dialysis and transplantation. We cover the field from molecule to bedside, from the most recent scientific advances to the current clinical approaches. You will also enjoy close interaction with the faculty in small group workshops. You are encouraged to present your poster, raise questions and consult your colleagues on problematic cases. You are also invited to visit our quality dialysis and research units.
We have acted, based on the experience from previous successful years, to keep our standards high. Our success is reflected by the increasing number of participants who have repeatedly attended the school. I hope that the commitment of my colleagues have successfully provided the best conditions for you to learn during this week. I also hope that you will enjoy our exciting social programs and culture in Budapest. You should not forget about the 9th International Symposium on Wine and Health. Wine is not only important to Hungarians but it has a several thousand-year history in mankind’s life. Although, there are 22 historical vineyards in our country, among them such famous places as Tokaj, Villány, Badacsony, and the long culture and tradition of wine consumption, there is a high incidence of cardiovascular disease with the resultant serious decrease in life expectancy in this region.
The 17th Budapest Nephrology School was accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) for 30 European CME credits (ECMEC). The Course included 48 hours of scientific lectures and a final examination which can be locally evaluated according to national standards (in Hungary it is equal to 50 CME credits). We are expecting to have similar evaluation for the 18th Budapest Nephrology School as well.
