PDU for Interventionalists Virtual Course

PD (Peritoneal Dialysis) University for Interventionalists provides a two-step approach to training Interventional Nephrologists and Interventional Radiologists to place catheters for peritoneal dialysis using image guided techniques. The first step involves an online series of comprehensive lectures covering all aspects of creating and maintaining PD access. The lecture topics are organized in a logical fashion, one subject building upon the previous, and therefore can only be viewed in the prescribed sequence.
Once viewed, each video can be revisited multiple times, but the entire series should be completed within 90 days of starting the course. Upon completion of the series, the learner may request CME credits.

Completion of the didact lecture portion of this program also qualifies the participant to register for the CME accredited second step of the course comprised of a hands-on workshop of PD access techniques. A calendar of upcoming hands-on workshops will be announced on this website at a future date.

This course is designed for Interventional Nephrologists and Interventional Radiologist without regard to PD catheter placement experience.
