Glomerular Disease Case Conferences 2018-07-07T19:51:16+00:00

Glomerular Disease Case Conference

The Glomerular Disease Case Conference is the equivalent of “Tumor Review Boards” in clinical oncology. Every other week we meet online to discuss cases of glomerular disease through live video chat.  Participants are nephrologists, nephro-pathologist, healthcare providers, and researchers with an interest in glomerular kidney disease.
Anyone can submit a case from his/her practice, and anyone can sign up to start the discussion.

Selection of cases is simple:
ANY case has a valuable teaching point: If you have a patient with any type of glomerular disease, just submit for group discussion. We all will learn!
Any case you would be curious to know the opinion of your colleagues.
Any diagnostic dilemmas (there are many).
Any therapeutic dilemmas (there are even more).

By participating, you acknowledge:
No personal identifiable information to be exchanged during sessions.
Case discussions are solely for the purpose of education.
Any diagnostic or treatment decision is the sole responsibility of the treating physician.

Healthcare Professionals can participate in the Glomerular Disease Case Conferences at any level desired. Many participants join and simply watch and listen in to the discussion and path review. We welcome case submissions and presentations from any practicing nephrologist or nephropathologist. A group of core faculty has devoted their time on a volunteering basis to review and discuss submitted cases. All participants are encouraged to join in the discussion and provide their perspective and experience in managing similar cases.

Participation is free but requires registration. Interested healthcare professionals and trainees in medicine are asked to email their full name, specialty, and practice location to [email protected] to receive an invitation to upcoming sessions. Registered participants can join the session from PC, Mac, Linux, iPhone, iPad or Android mobile devices and will receive 1 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM per each fully attended session.

We encourage each participant to consider submitting cases from their daily practice which can serve as a valuable learning experience for other participants. A brief case summary, removed of any patient identifier, can be emailed to [email protected] or pertinent clinical notes faxed to 617-754-8635 (HIPPA compliant efax). Simply contact us if you wish to review a particular case, and we help with the next steps.
