“The Glomerular Disease Case Conferences are an excellent way to learn and refresh difficult and common glomerular disease cases and wonderful for both community and academic nephrologist…I hope I can continue being part of this great learning environment”

Dr. Farhan Abid, Nephrologist, Miami, Fl, USA

“I found the glomcon project to be a great initiative and invaluable educational resource. Having the opportunity to discuss cases with nephrologist and nephropathologist from different centers and even countries enriches our knowledge of glomerular diseases, where gaps in diagnostic and therapeutics still exist. Our fellows love it to the point that they stay after hours for the sessions. The combination of excellent cases, high level discussions and innovative use of media for participant interaction make glomcon a must for nephrologists taking care of patients with glomerular diseases.”

Dr. Franco Cabeza Rivera, Nephrologist, University of Mississippi Medical Center

“Glomcon is great, I love it. The case are well selected and the discussion is brilliant. I have learned a lot from these and thoroughly enjoy the discussions. I think your effort and hard work shows, brilliant initiative. It is especially great for us in private practice who get to interact with key opinion leaders in Nephrology.”

Dr. Varun Chwla, Nephrologist, Private Practive, California

“I feel very lucky to find your website where I finally could learn nephrology cases from the bests. Your education initiative is a very impressive one, as anyone in any part of the world could actually have the same chance to learn nephrology from the best in a relax atmosphere. I would recommend your website to my pathologist and nephrologist colleagues so we could built a strong nephrology team together. Thanks once again and I’m looking forward to learn today’s case.”

Dr. Reny Duarsa, Nephrologist, Bali, Indonesia

“For the past year I have been a participant in the online gomerulonephritis conference. Each month we are having more participants from around the world. It is truly a unique format to present challenging cases with expert pathology review and expert discussion. I see a continued growth in the number of participants and expert discussants.”

Dr. Michael Germain, Professor of Medicine, Baystate Medical Center, MA, USA

“Tremendous learning moments with in depth discussions truly patient oriented not found elsewhere.”

Dr. Eduardo Haddad, Nephrologist, Chief of Medical Staff, Lawrence General Hospital, MA, USA

“Glomcon definitely opened an opportunity for nephrologists from different practice models and institutions to interact and discuss rare glomerulonephritis cases and their controversial management. I consider it a unique learning experience because you get live evidence-based feedback from nephrologists, pathologists and other specialists involved in the cases. ”

Dr. Samer Nasser, Nephrologist, Atrius Health, MA, USA

“Glomcon – An interactive online nephrology forum to discuss and learn interesting glomerulonephritis cases from around the world, in a friendly environment. Definitely, a great learning opportunity for community nephrologists like me. Easy to use. A must for all nephrologists.”

Dr. Malvinder Parmar, Nephrologist, Timmins, Ontario, Canada.

“These live GN video conferences are very sophisticated but still fun friendly discussions. You can simply listen or join in. Great way to learn. Sign-up for email alerts!”

Dr. Roger Rodby, Professor of Medicine, Rush University Medical Center

The Glomerular Disease Study & Trial Consortium (GlomCon) is a new project with the goal to create enabling platforms for clinicians and scientists to exchange ideas, participate in online conferences, and collaborate on basic science and clinical research projects.

This consortium is at work to create a seamless infrastructure for its members and be a catalyst for:

Discuss clinical cases of glomerular disease & expose medical trainees to its complexities.

Solicit opinion from peers and share experience in management of glomerular disease cases

Pose scientific questions, develop research protocols, and collaborate on projects.

Facilitate large scale basic science and clinical research studies, and leverage the power of the network for implementation of clinical trials.

GlomCon Nephrology Fellowship Training Program Trivia

The Inauguration of the GlomCon Nephrology Fellowship Program’s Trivia session was conducted over a 2 day period.  A total of 16 nephrology programs across the United States, Canada, and Ireland attended the live session. Approximately 62 Nephrology Fellows participated in the audience response poll. We thank Drs. Nikhil Agrawal and Stewart Lecker from BIDMC, as well as all participating programs in making this a success. Stay tuned for the next Trivia Session on August 15th, chaired by Drs. Pravir Baxi and Roger Rodby from Rush Medical Center.
