Studying Nephrology - The Resources

Continuing from the previous post on "The guidelines", this post is about some essential and useful resources when you want to study about Nephrology.
ASN (American Society of Nephrology) tops the list. ASN is actively leading the fight against kidney diseases by educating, sharing new knowledge and advancing research. In the website, you can access the learning center and their excellent Nephrology self-assessment program (NephSAP), reading their official journals of JASN and cJASN, and subscribing to their Kidney News as well. Membership is free for any Nephro trainees.
ISN (International Society of Nephrology) Academy is an interactive e-learning platform and mobile app providing access to latest knowledge and updates in nephrology. By being a member, there is access to ISN's official journal - Kidney International which is one of the most premier Nephrology journals.  

ISPD (International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis) has been introduced in the previous post. Besides the guidelines, ISPD also provides free access to PD curriculum which cover important PD topics such as PD prescription, adequacy, techniques, ultrafiltration issues and PD complications etc.

Other resources are as follow:
