Activities for Fellows & Residents

Career Choices in Nephrology

Tuesday, April 10th 6:30pm - 8:30pm 
A special session perfect for trainees in internal medicine and nephrology who are trying to decide what career path to choose in nephrology. In a friendly and fun "speed networking/mentoring" environment, meet a range of experienced individuals currently active in private practice, academic medicine, and industry.  Learn why these individuals decided on their career paths, their backgrounds, what they did to secure their jobs, and if (and how) they would do it again if they were starting over.  We hope to see you there! This activity will be followed by a complimentary beer/wine reception with hors d'oeuvres.  

Cases on Difficult Topics 

Thursday, April 12th 12:15pm - 1:45pm 
Medical residents often find certain topics within nephrology difficult. This is particularly true for sodium disorders, acid-base and glomerular diseases. The NKF Education Committee aims to address these concerns by offering a short session specifically dedicated to medical residents focusing on these topics.

Thursday, April 12; 2:00pm – 3:30pm
