Glomerular Disease Case Conferences from GlomCon on Vimeo.

I would like
to introduce you to a new educational project for Nephrology fellowship programs, the Glomcon Teaching Tool. It has been
selected as a finalist in this year’s ongoing ASN Innovation contest.
This
teaching tool has four components:
 1) A Pre-conference ‘Glomcon Trivia’ webinar :
Tuesday 12pm.
-Hour long
sessions, led on a rotating basis twice a month by participating Nephrology
Programs
-Live
audience response polling
2) Live
web-based Glomcon Case Conferences, Wednesday 6pm
-Conferences
include pathology slides review by a nephropathologist. Discussion is led by a
volunteering nephrologist.
3) Web-based archive of de-identified case
summaries from past conferences with pathology images
4)
Discussion forum questions from the pre-conference webinar will be posted in an
online quiz format for users who may have missed it earlier.
We will
organize the first Glomcon Trivia session on August 1 with the case conference on
August 2.
At this
time, 13 programs across the country are participating in it. If you or your
program would like to be a part of this endeavor, please email me at nagrawa2@bidmc.harvard.edu. If you
would like to sign up for the Glomcon case conferences, please email conferences@glomcon.org.
Thank you
very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
