Event Overview
Welcome message:

The Miami Pediatric Nephrology Seminar now in its 42nd year is an unique international gathering of pediatric and adult nephrologists, pediatricians, internists, general practitioners, renal pathologists, neonatologists, pediatric urologists, transplant surgeons, nurses, nutritionists and allied health professionals from all over the United States and the world sponsored by the University of Miami, Leonard Miller School of Medicine and Holtz Children’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

The content is basic, the approach is clinical. Conceptual and practical problems are featured in a balance of formal presentations followed by informal discussions. Topics covered relate research advances to the understanding of mechanisms of renal disease, pathological expressions and clinical diagnosis and management.

All registrants have opportunities to be involved in a dynamic exchange of information, experience, and insight. Selection of topics, faculty and format are based on suggestions from past Seminar participants and current questions.

The Pre-Seminar Renal Pathology Course directed by the renowned pathologist Laura Barisoni M.D. is and intensive, 2 days comprehensive course covering all aspects of nephro-pathology starting with sample processing and transition to glomerular, tubular, cystic as well as systemic and metabolic disorders affecting pediatric and young adult patients. This course will start on March 5 and will continue on Friday March 6, 2015.

The Pediatric Nephrology Seminar XLII will start with a combined Session on Friday afternoon. The Seminar will have an exciting scientific program covering a wide range of topics, including * the Nephrotic Syndrome,

  • Clinico-Pathologic Correlations,
  • the Kidney in the Neonate,
  • Genetics for the Clinician,
  • Nutrition and Growth in CKD (Workshop),
  • Research and Fellowship Training Initiatives,
  • Bones and Stones and Dialysis,
  • CRRT and Transplant Challenges.

An optional “hands-on” Workshop dealing with CRRT and specifically designed for physician in-training will be conducted at Holtz Children’s Hospital at the end of the Seminar.

In addition, this year we will have NephCure’s Community Cafés (a patient education program) including specific elements designed to educate patients and their families about Nephrotic Syndrome, its pathology, diagnosis and treatment options. This full day of Educational Program on FSGS/Nephrotic Syndrome for patients, families and care-providers will be partnered with the NephCure Foundation and will take place on Saturday March 7.

The Seminar will feature 26 distinguished Guest Faculty and 13 Local Faculty who will provide expertise and cordial exchanges including several panel discussions and Meet the Professor Luncheons. We hope you will enjoy attending this newly structured scientific meeting.

You won’t need your coat, boots, or umbrella, but a light jacket may feel good in Miami’s moonlit evening breezes and super-air conditioned restaurants.
