ISN Educational Ambassadors
Renal centers around the world can apply to the Educational Ambassadors (EA) Program to receive expert guidance and hands-on training to advance new initiatives, skills or services, and community-based research or screening programs.
For up to four weeks, ISN ambassadors advise on clinical cases and research addressing dialysis, interventional nephrology, renal pathology, transplantation, and peritoneal dialysis to improve clinical care as well as the confidence of professionals, including nurses and technicians, and the quality of life and survival rate of patients.
A potential long-term interaction between the host center and the ISN Ambassador is encouraged to extend the mentorship and foster the possibility of further training through additional ISN Programs.
Applications are open year-round to ISN members but should be submitted 3-6 months before the planned visit.
Applications are reviewed by ISN staff and the ISN Educational Ambassadors Committee.
ISN works hand in hand with a several organizations, encouraging intra-regional collaborations and enhancing training and education possibilities in selected fields of nephrology.
