Course content

Do you feel out of your comfort zone when a patient displays symptoms of kidney problems? Would you like to improve your management of patients suffering from or at risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD)? Could your organisation benefit from a renal specialist? If so, the MSc Renal Medicine could help.

Delivered with our collaborative partner Diploma MSc, the online MSc in Renal Medicine is specifically designed for healthcare professionals frequently seeing patients displaying symptoms of kidney disease who aren’t renal specialists.

In clinical practice, kidney disease is encountered frequently both in primary and secondary care by the non-kidney specialist, especially as it is as a complication of common conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, so healthcare professionals on the front line need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to deal with potential nephrology patients confidently and effectively.

The course content is case based with a clinical focus. And as it’s designed based on extensive research with primary care practitioners, it’s highly relevant and includes the latest developments in renal medicine for front line healthcare professionals.
