Testimonials

Rahman_singaporecopy
Dr. Azizur Rahman IPNA Fellow, NUH Singapore

Children’s kidney Centre at NUH has a warm, and supportive atmosphere for learning. This training also gave me opportunity to enhance procedural skills in pediatric nephrology. It has boosted my confidence. I will serve children who are suffering from renal disease in Bangladesh, who cannot afford advance care like developed country.

Dr. Zihui Lin IPNA Fellow, Children´s Hospital at Fudan University, Shanghai

After a year of study, I have mastered standard methods of diagnosis and treatment of common kidney diseases in children especially the management of critical complications of kidney diseases, renal replacement therapy and the management before kidney transplantation. I also participated in the collation of some scientific research data, which improved my research capacity.

beatrice-nyann
Dr. Beatrice Nyann IPNA Fellow

The opportunity given me by  IPNA to train in pediatric nephrology has been one of utmost importance in my medical career. The exposure through this training has been remarkably excellent. The support, teaching and supervision of my consultants have been amazing; not only in academic or professional engagements but social engagements as well. I have been able to meet my prior set objectives and additionally acquired other skills that were not originally part of my envisaged target goals.
