Simulation Certificate Course in Abu Dhabi

Given the steadily increasing demand for interventional nephrology in low and middle-income countries, the ISN, with generous support from Cleveland Clinic, will hold a simulation training session from 8 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. on Friday, March 27, 2020, in Abu Dhabi.

The course focuses on learning and practicing procedures, such as central venous catheter placement, kidney biopsies, and physical examination of vascular access under supervision. The aim is to offer supervised training to help students feel comfortable performing the procedures. This course is separate from the Interventional Nephrology pre-course taking place on Thursday 26 at WCN20.

As a component of this course in Abu Dhabi, ISN will shortly release an online didactic module designed for general nephrologists, nephrology trainees, advanced practitioners, nephrology nurses, and technicians. It will provide an overview of vascular access biology, process of care, identification of complications, and fundamentals of quality improvement goals. To receive the “Mastery in Simulation Training” certificate, this online module must be completed and a supervised simulation training must be passed prior to the hands-on training session in Abu Dhabi.

The registration fee for the course is $1,000. Cleveland Clinic has generously agreed to sponsor the course fee for 15 trainees from low to middle-income countries. The sponsored delegates will be recognized as Brenda and Tim Huval Interventional Nephrology Scholars.

The course has a maximum capacity of 30 people. If you would like to participate in the course, please complete the registration form and send to before March 3.
