Studying Nephrology in Canada

Students studying nephrology take foundation courses in anatomy and physiology, and then take more advanced courses in nephrology. They learn electrolyte physiology, medical management of acute and chronic renal failure, vascular disorders, tubular and interstitial disorders, mineral metabolism, clinical pharmacology, hypertension, epidemiology, and nutrition.

Practical procedures include native and transplant kidney biopsies, ultrasound guidance, placement of temporary dialysis catheters, placement of tunneled hemodialysis catheters and placement of peritoneal dialysis catheters. They also learn how to do microscopic urinalysis, as well as an introduction to techniques of renal replacement therapy (dialysis and transplantation).

Seminars in nephrology are presented on a regular basis which allows the student to keep abreast of recent advances in technology, case studies, and new available drugs.
