High quality research in renal physiology has a long tradition in Switzerland. The continuous education programme Translational Nephrology provides extensive insights into the basics of nephrology by studying the physiological and pathophysiological bases of kidney function in health and disease.
Starting with clinical cases and key articles illustrating the translational aspects, the topic is further explored by blended-learning including face-to-face sessions with module leaders and tutors, access to annotated online-resources, self-guided e-learning, presentations and assessments.
