is pleased to announce open registration for the 4th Hemodialysis Academy which begins 12 October 2020. The Hemodialysis Academy has become the foundational curriculum providing in-depth instruction in the theory and veterinary applications of extracorporeal therapies. Over 225 trainees from 23 countries throughout the world have participated in past Academies. The legacy continues with the start of the 4th Hemodialysis Academy providing a 13-month intensive online certification in the principles and veterinary applications of blood purification therapies.

The 2020-2021 Hemodialysis Academy provides more than 160 hours of instruction from the world’s leading renal medicine and extracorporeal experts on the principles, basic science, and clinical applications of intermittent hemodialysis, continuous renal replacement therapy, hemoadsorption, therapeutic apheresis (plasma exchange, plasma adsorption, and cytapheresis), peritoneal dialysis, acute and chronic kidney failure, and operation of an extracorporeal program.

The web-based curriculum provides a combination of live, interactive, archived, and self-paced modules, and is available to veterinarians worldwide. Enrollees participate in real-time or by archived recordings in one-hour lectures and discussions sessions on Monday and Wednesday and one-hour extracorporeal rounds and group discussions on Friday. The curriculum is punctuated with online laboratory sessions and live interactive streaming of actual extracorporeal treatments from prominent extracorporeal centers.
