See below for details on a very interesting looking course for Renal Fellows:
We are excited to introduce a new innovative program available to Nephrology Fellows -   Nephrology Business Leadership University (
NBLU is a unique week long program that brings together a diverse faculty of practicing Nephrologists, hospital and dialysis provider executives, and other healthcare professionals who will share their insights on leadership, the business of nephrology, and the evolving healthcare landscape.  Most sessions are held in a workshop format and are highly interactive and individualized.  

Fellows attending a NBLU rotation can expect to leave with:
1.Ability to evaluate potential employers for the ultimate fit

3.An understanding of the ever-changing payment / reimbursement landscape
4.The know-how to embark as a solo practitioner or as a high impact member of a group practice
5.Confidence approaching the interview process
6.Knowing you have the tools to start your career in the right direction

Topics Covered:
-Billing & Coding Workshop

NBLU will hold its second annual program from August 7th to August 11,2017 in Plano, Texas.
Since we would like to keep the sessions very interactive space is limited. 

Registration is free and can be done on the website

Travel support, hotel accommodations, and most meals are provided to all fellows that are attending.  There should be little to no out of pocket expenses to the fellow or their training program.
