KIDNEYcon is an annual conference (this is the 4rd year) designed to provide updates in the latest advances in kidney care in a hands-on collaborative format. A key component of KIDNEYcon’s mission is to build enthusiasm for the field of nephrology among residents and fellows. We also aim to facilitate collaborative research projects among participants of the conference. The conference is a platform for nephrologists and trainees to interact with experts from across the nation and learn about and discuss recent advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease. KIDNEYcon consists of half day workshops targeted primarily to medicine residents, nephrology fellows and early stage nephrologists and a scientific and clinical conference with broader applicability. KIDNEYcon is the official meeting of the Nephrology Social Media Collective (NSMC).
