It serves as a hub for diverse learning and guiding professionals at various stages of their careers. Through this website Nephrologists & primary care physicians will have access to resources, to stay abreast of cutting-edge developments in the field, thereby ensuring the highest standards of patient care.

JOURNAL SCAN

This section aims to streamline articles from various national and international Nephrology Journals for quick updates. We acknowledge the challenges of staying current with the plethora of published articles across numerous journals amidst busy practices. This section – JOURNAL SCAN, under senior faculty guidance, will offer concise updates of most of the articles published, providing a reference point for further exploration online. The effort also will involve critiquing and analyzing significant landmark articles with insights from senior Nephrologists and statisticians, enhancing existing literature. Please note that the scan offers only a snapshot and abstracts of select articles and we encourage healthcare professionals to delve deeper into journals for comprehensive coverage, including reviews, letters to editors, guidelines, and clinical case reports.
