Short Description
This training course is an annual event with the aim to teach nephrological fellows
practical skills and theoretical background of diagnostics by renal biopsy. As in
earlier years, the biopsy part consists of a unit comprising handling of biopsy
equipment and practical biopsy shots in anatomical corpses with particular
preparation. This concept was granted with superior participants evaluation during
the last 10years. A scientific publication on course content and results can be
retreived at  http://theglobaljournals.com/ijsr/articles.php?val=NDcxMg==&b1=417&k=105
In 2016, the course will be augmented by a presentation on endovascular renal
biopsy and clinical biopsy conference of particular clinical cases. Participants are
being invited to bring their own cases which can be discussed with course staff and
Our courses are well suited for those preparing for board examination in Nephrology
