Introduction IPNA Junior Master Classes provide advanced teaching in pediatric nephrology as a joint initiative with Regional Societies.

The IPNA Juniors Committee is involved in the planning of educational programming for early career pediatric nephrologists

IPNA Council started the initiative of a Junior Masterclass to engage early career pediatric nephrologists in IPNA activities. Since the first IPNA-ESPN Junior Masterclass in 2014, annual classes have been organized through multiple regional societies. To date, courses have run in conjunction with ESPN, AsPNA, and AfPNA encouraging participation of Juniors internationally.

The Junior Masterclasses follow a 3-year curriculum, with lectures given by IPNA and Regional Society teachers. The courses are accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) for 9-15 European CME credits. Between 47-75 international attendees participate in the course each year, from over 30 nations. Attendees write a final exam to graduate. Currently, over 50 Juniors have completed the course and earned their certificate.
