The ERKNet Postgraduate Curriculum is a structured 3-year online programme consisting of webinars and case-based eLearning covering the whole spectrum of rare kidney diseases. The webinars are presented twice a month by outstanding paediatric or adult nephrologists, nephropathologists and geneticists. Additionally, we offer eLearning cases that present scenarios of patients with rare kidney diseases, allowing the students to establish a diagnosis and choose appropriate therapeutic strategies.
The training programme targets post-graduate physicians who wish to become certified European experts in rare kidney diseases. Physicians who complete the educational program and confirm sufficient clinical activity in the field of rare kidney diseases will be recognized by a Certificate as “Rare Kidney Disease Specialist”.
Currently, ERKNet has three ongoing classes and envisions to re-launch each year a new curriculum class (from Oct - Dec). In total 347 interested ERKNet healthcare professionals from 65 health care providers in 22 European countries enrolled to the ERKNet Postgraduate Curriculum in Rare Kidney Disease.
While the eLearning contents are reserved for curriculum students, the ERKNet webinars are open to the public. So far, ERKNet broadcasted more than 100 ERKNet webinars with more than 10,000 attendees around the globe.
