About the Event

On Thursday the 12th of March - World Kidney Day, the Renal Physicians Association will join the Transplant Support Group and the Renal Unit staff in their various WKD activities, primarily at the Mater Dei Hospital (Malta) foyer.

In the late afternoon/evening, the Nephrology Division (nephrology trainees, resident specialists and consultants – approximately 25 members) will convene at a special off-site seminar with the invited distinguished nephrologists as speakers. The invited foreign guest speakers will also present during the actual symposium on various topics related to clinical nephrology, dialysis and transplantation, but pitched at a more general audience.

Additionally, participants will be invited to submit abstracts for poster presentation during the event. It is our intention to have the symposium completely free of charge for all participants.

Nephrologists from all over the world are welcome!

The symposium is open to all healthcare professionals and students are encouraged to attend

Registration is free.
