Dear Fellows, Dear Doctors, Dear Professors, Dear Colleagues,
Following the many positive comments about the 1st series of “Let’s talk about kidney stones” webinars, we are delighted to invite you for the 2nd year of Online Academy 2021-2022. The scientific program has been prepared in collaboration with worldwide experts from International Collaborative Network on Kidney Stones.
This year, we will continue to focus on the gaps between the pathophysiological discoveries and clinical aspects of patients with kidney stone disease.
Our aim is to share the knowledge within the community of healthcare professionals interested in the improvement of understanding of kidney stone disease pathophysiology to update the skills in the assessment, treatment and follow-up of the kidney stone formers.
The twice monthly virtual meetings on Thursday 06:00 PM CET (Central European Time) corresponding to 11:00 AM Central Standard Time (CST) in the U.S. will include a ‘vignette case’, lecture given by one of remarkable teachers and speakers followed by a question-answer session.
· Registration is free!
· “Let’s talk about kidney stones” Online Academy program for 2021-2022
· Accreditation SPF/INAMI has been requested for Belgian accreditation and European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) for European accreditation.
We look forward to seeing you 16th September for the 9thClass!
