2020 Mid-Atlantic First Year Renal Fellow Symposium

The 13th Annual Mid-Atlantic First-Year Renal Fellow Symposium will take place on July 6-7, 2020. This two-day, non-CME symposium is designed to provide new fellows the background they need to start their fellowship and gain an immediate understanding of the disease states they are likely to encounter in nephrology. Due to the adapted, virtual nature of the symposium this year, we are excited to welcome first year nephrology fellows from programs nationwide. Please contact Marielle Van Thuyne for more information and details on registering.

This Symposium is supported by a Medical Education Grant from

AstraZeneca
