Course Summary


The Brigham Renal Board Review Course major objective is to prepare participants for the ABIM Subspecialty Board Examination in Nephrology (Certification/Re-Certification). It conveys state-of-theart information on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of renal disorders. The program also addresses fluid and electrolyte problems, hypertension, renal disease, and the management of acute and chronic renal failure. Additionally, the activity emphasizes the practical application of physiological principles to the understanding and management of clinical problems.
 
 

Intended Audience


This activity should be most valuable for clinical and academic nephrologists, nephrology trainees and internists, pediatricians and primary care physicians with an interest in nephrology and hypertension. This activity should be an excellent intensive board review for those registered to take the nephrology boards and a comprehensive update for those seeking recertification.
