35th Annual Postgraduate Medicine Course Renal Biopsy in Medical Diseases of the Kidneys
Alumni Auditorium William Black Medical Research Building
Columbia University Medical Center 650 West 168th Street New York, NY 10032
New York, New York , USA
Renal Biopsy in Medical Diseases of the Kidneys is an intensive 3 1/2 day
course designed for pathologists, nephrologists, internists and other physicians
interested in both a systematic review and an update on advances in diagnostic
problems in medical renal diseases.
The course should be of special interest to physicians who are preparing for their
specialty Board Examinations in Pathology and Clinical Nephrology.
At the conclusion of the course, participants should be able to better understand
the pathophysiology and clinical aspects of the major parenchymal diseases of
the kidney, with emphasis on clinical-pathologic correlations and the role of
renal biopsy.
The format includes lectures, question-and-answer sessions and the study of case
problems. A limited/optional Renal Pathology Laboratory exercise is available
on Saturday afternoon after the conclusion of the formal lectures.
