In-person, Hybrid or Virtual?

In the last couple of years we have learned much about virtual platforms and online meetings. Hybrid meetings are likely to become more common in the future. There are certainly pros and cons of each type. Keep in mind that while virtual may seem
the easiest option, the preparations and effort during the TC requires a lot of work and time, perhaps even more than for a physical meeting.

For virtual meetings we are committed to helping organizers solve their virtual platform issues. Make sure you discuss this possibility with us prior to submission of the application.


IPNA Teaching Courses Q&A Session



Maolynne Miller TC in Jamaica

“I wish to thank IPNA for its wonderful support of our the recently concluded Paediatric Nephrology Conference and Worskhop in Neonanal Nephrology. We are immensely grateful to IPNA for the amazing contributions of our visiting IPNA paediatric nephrologists – Professors Abitbol and Bunchman.“

Augustina Jankauskiene TC in Lithuania

“I am happy to share our positive feedback for the teaching course on kidney cystic diseases on the 15th of November in Vilnius. All participants were impressed by the high professional level and case discussions.“

Shankar Yadav TC in Nepal

“IPNA TC in Dharan was a great success, participants liked the course design, topic, presentation and panel discussion. Similarly, the hands-on training was interesting to the participants and they were very happy to get involved in such training, first of its kind in Nepal. I look forward to working for IPNA in the future and to work together to serve the little kidneys in this part of the world.“
