Transcript

  • 1. Pediatric Nephrology (Saudi Commission for Health Specialties) The purpose of the training program is to provide the fellow with the knowledge to diagnose and treat renal disease and to understand and gain insight into the physiology of body fluids and electrolytes in children. The duration of the fellowship program is two years but an additional one-year can be granted. The first year of training will emphasize on the development of clinical skills, including the diagnosis and medical management of kidney diseases, abnormalities, hypertension, and disorders of fluids and electrolytes. The majority of the time will be devoted to clinically oriented problems and some to research. During training, clinical instruction will have strong emphasis on the pathophysiology of renal disease. In addition, a wide experience will be provided for the management of end stage renal disease. This will include different forms of chronic peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis, and renal transplantation. The experience in end stage renal disease will be integrated over the two-year period of training, allowing for continuity of care since many of the patients are followed over a long period.
