About Revise Nephrology Malaysia

The Revise Nephrology course is aimed at providing a comprehensive understanding of renal medicine including dialysis and transplantation. While common conditions in various medical sub-specialties are relatively well understood for e.g. CCF and ACS in Cardiology, COPD and respiratory failure in Respiratory Medicine or cirrhosis in Gastroenterology etc., many of the common cases one comes across in Nephrology e.g. work up of acute kidney injury, differential diagnosis of glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome and the various renal tubular acidosis are not well understood.

The aim of this course is to create a platform on which renal topics which are of interest from a professional and examination point of view will be discussed in a comprehensive and easy language. Lectures will be backed by topic-wise multiple choice questions with discussions around them. It is hoped that this course will help in preparation for MRCP and MMED exams and also more importantly help to equip house officers and medical officers who intend to enter general physician training with improved knowledge and a practical approach to renal management.

This 2-day short course aims to provide an overview of common conditions in nephrology. Lectures notes will be uploaded at drive and can be downloaded. There will be 2 dedicated case-based discussions to highlight important points in the lectures. 

Participants are encouraged to formulate questions and are welcome to discuss it during the lectures
