Program Purpose / Objectives
Objectives:

To provide the physician with a working knowledge of clinically relevant and up-to-date topics in clinical nephrology using a combined lecture and case study approach. This review will provide a practical overview of commonly encountered problems in clinical nephrology, focusing on prevention, diagnosis, and management. For each topic, nephrology essentials will be reviewed and illustrative cases explored and discussed.

Participants will be invited to share their clinical experiences, concerns, and insights. Upon completion of the course, participants should have a clear understanding of the stages of chronic kidney disease and be able to enumerate the common disease entities that result in chronic disease; recognize common complications of chronic kidney disease especially anemia and abnormalities of calcium and phosphorus metabolism, their pathophysiology and management.

Participants should be familiar with the incidence of hypertension in the community, its demographics and complications, and be able to describe the approach to management of the difficult to control hypertensive patient. Participants should recognize the renal complications of diabetes mellitus, its pathophysiology and approach to management; describe the different types of kidney stones, their pathophysiology and management; recognize the significance of proteinuria, describe the common diseases associated with proteinuria, and understand the management of proteinuria.

The practitioner should also be familiar with the approach to proteinuria and hypertension during pregnancy, and describe the long-term complications of preeclampsia. Finally, the practitioner should be able to describe the pathophysiology of cardiorenal syndrome and diuretic resistance, and understand the use of diuretics in clinical practice.

Ideal candidates for these seminars include physicians as well as other health care professionals involved in the daily management of renal patients in inpatient or outpatient setting.

Ports of Call

Miami, Florida - South Florida's exciting, international city is much more than the gateway to Latin America, it's one of the world's most popular vacation destinations. Before departing from Miami, enjoy a tour that will highlight this "Magic City." Board an airboat and explore the wild Everglades‐be ready to see gators. Experience the one-of-a-kind art deco district in South Beach. Discover a cuisine and culture that fits perfectly with your South American adventure.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Labadee, Haiti - This tropical paradise, reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, features pristine beaches, walking trails and breathtaking vistas. Labadee is the perfect setting for parasailing, wave runners and the kayak tour, all available on your own private island.

San Juan, Puerto Rico - In days of yore, the waters near Puerto Rico teemed with pirate ships commanded by the likes of Sir Francis Drake. Aye, they are long gone, but in their wake they have left an island of national treasures: La Casa Blanca, built in 1501 for the island's first governor, Ponce de Leon; the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan; the tropical rain forests of El Yunque.  

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. - Named after a Danish Queen, Charlotte Amalie has one of the most breathtaking deepwater harbors in the world. The key sights of Charlotte Amalie are located within the town centre, making it easy to combine sightseeing with St. Thomas’ fantastic shopping opportunities. Eighteenth century architecture provides the perfect backdrop for walking tours and shopping here in the "Duty Free Capital of the World." For a dose of history, visit Emancipation Park, the American-Caribbean History Museum, or Bluebeard the pirate's castle at Magen’s Bay. If tropical bliss is what you're after, head to any of Charlotte Amalie’s pristine beaches, where the warm water, white sands and palm trees will lull you into deep relaxation!

Coco Cay, Bahamas - Located in the middle of the Caribbean's bright blue water lies the secluded island of CocoCay. With its white-sand beaches and spectacular surroundings, CocoCay is a wonderland of adventure. Reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, this tropical paradise has recently been updated with new aquatic facilities, nature trails and a ton of great places to just sit back, relax and enjoy a tropical drink.
