About Our Event
The Home Dialysis University is an in-person, immersive approach to home dialysis therapies education. The course is designed to provide in-depth training on home dialysis and includes topics such as physiology, prescription writing, long-term care, and infrastructure of a home dialysis unit. Participants will experience didactic and small group sessions that will allow interaction with faculty to help formulate an approach for use in clinical practice.
Because this training is designed for each lecture to build on the content of previous lectures, participants should plan on full participation, including pre-recorded pre-event and post-event lectures that will be provided close to the event date.
The courses in the Fall 2023 are designed specifically for Fellows in Nephrology. CME and MOC credits will not be provided for these courses.
A course for medical practitioners (including Attending Physicians, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners) will be held in the Spring of 2024. Visit www.hduphysicians.com for more information.
The specific lectures and breakouts will be posted at a later date.
