The Nephrology Board Review Course is an intensive teaching program in the subject of Renal Diseases, Dialysis and Transplantation.
The faculty, which is usually a dozen teachers from across the world, impart this training which serves to assist Nephrology fellows preparing for their upcoming Board exams, as well as practicing Nephrologists to upgrade their knowledge and their skills in the subject.
The Apex Nephrology Board Review is an annual event organised in April-May by the Apex Academia, the academic arm of Apex Kidney Foundation. It is a 4 day event over 12 hours per day, where interactions between the delegates and the faculty are conducted in an interactive fashion, with a predominantly case based format. The first course was organised in 2010. This is a residential course held at one of the hotels near the Mumbai airport.
In 2016, the prestigious Massachusetts General hospital tied up with the Apex Kidney Foundation and in 2019 it was jointly hosted by the Apex Kidney Foundation and Cedars Sinai Medical Centre.
