UCL Applied Renal Physiology Course

29/04/20 - 01/05/20

A modular course for clinicians and scientists

This unique 3-day course integrates understanding of renal physiology and electrolyte and acid-base disorders that many find confusing.
It features lectures from international physiology and nephrology experts, small group case discussions and workshops in order to ground participants in the pathophysiology and clinical management of electrolyte and acid-base disorders, hypertension and fluid management.

Who this course is for

This course is aimed at trainees in renal medicine but is also relevant to healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with chronic renal failure.

Topics covered include:

  • Glomerular function
  • Proximal tubular function
  • Water handling in the nephron
  • Distal tubular function
  • Renal tubular acidosis
  • Nephron overview
  • Acid-base physiology
  • Metabolic acidosis and alkalosis
  • Hypophosphataemia
  • Acid-base small group case workshops
  • Hyponatraemia
  • Hypernatraemia
  • Sodium small group case workshops
  • Hypokalaemia
  • Hyperkalaemia
  • Magnesium disorders
  • Calcium homeostasis and the kidney
  • PO4Mg/K/Ca small group case workshops
  • IV Fluid therapy
  • Diuretics
