Every year we like to publicize the MDIBL origins of renal physiology course. This is a great opportunity for renal fellows and the fact that it is free apart from transportation costs is a huge bonus. This is a message from the course director:
NATIONAL COURSE FOR RENAL FELLOWS: ORIGINS OF RENAL PHYSIOLOGY
THE ASN-Affiliated and NIH sponsored NATIONAL COURSE FOR RENAL FELLOWS: ORIGINS OF RENAL PHYSIOLOGY course welcomes applications from renal fellows. The one week course (8/31/13 - 9/7/13) provides an intensive hands on laboratory experience which teaches classical physiology coupled to modern cell and systems biology. The perspectives the course develops are ideally suited both to renal fellows who seek a career in investigation, as well as renal fellows who plan on a career as clinicians or clinician educators.
The course has received absolutely outstanding reviews from all of its trainees, over the past 7 years. With generous NIH support, the course is offered tuition free, and room and board at the seaside Mount Desert Island Laboratories are also free. The only cost is transportation to and from Boston; course organizers will help get all trainees between Boston and Maine.
To apply, go to the course website at: http://www.mdibl.org/courses/Origins_of_Renal_Physiology_Renal_Fellows/114/
We look forward to seeing you there!
All the best,
Mark L. Zeidel, M.D.
