The course is designed to assist nephrologists and nephropathologists in diagnosing and managing the most common forms of medical renal disease, including diseases that target the glomerulus, tubules, interstitium and blood vessels.
The activity will span three weeks and will include a combination of pre-recorded lectures and live sessions covering the following content areas:
Week 1 (June 26, 2020): Nephrotic syndrome
Week 2 (July 3, 2020): Nephritic syndromes
Week 3 (July 10): Tubulointerstitial, Vascular, Dysproteinemia, & Transplant
Each week will consist of approximately 8 hours of asynchronous content culminating in a 2 hour and 15-minute live session. The live sessions will be held on July 2, 9, and 16 and will consist of:
• 45 minutes of Q&A/panel discussion with faculty focusing on the lectures for the week.
• 45 minutes of 2 CPC cases, with pathologist and clinicians from Columbia University Irving Medical Center
• 45 minutes of “show & tell” renal pathology lab – 7-10 cases per day
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be better able to 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.
• pathology, pathophysiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, prognosis, and optimal therapy for many different medical renal diseases, including but not limited to minimal change disease, FSGS, membranous nephropathy, amyloidosis, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, IgA nephropathy, hereditary nephritis, acute post-infectious glomerulonephritis, amyloidosis, light chain deposition disease, myeloma cast nephropathy, cryoglobulinemic glomerulonephritis, lupus nephritis, and diabetic nephropathy.
