One Year Already?!
Kidney Academy celebrates ONE YEAR this month! And we have so much to celebrate!

We're Expanding Our Focus: We have expanded beyond online learning (CME) by providing extensive offerings to our online community focusing on all things dialysis access including: Peritoneal & Vascular, Interventional Procedures, Cannulation, Patient Centered Decision Making and more!

Why? We believe that connection and collaboration empowers the medical treatment team and is paramount to improving patient outcomes. That's why we offer an online community (our member portal) with new and expanding member resources.

We welcome diversity and a growth mindset for the shared goal of improved patient care. 

One Year Highlights:

  • Growing to over 700 members from 40+ countries!

  • Creating dozens of expert interview & case-based learning videos for our members

Please join us in our mission: To achieve an educated and fully integrated clinical care team who communicates and makes decisions in a coordinated and open fashion centered around the best interest of individual patients.
