The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) recently announced plans to begin offering physicians new Maintenance of Certification (MOC) options. The proposed changes come after months of pushback by the medical community and still may not go far enough in addressing concerns.

On June 1, 2016, three major nephrology societies signed a declaration of collaboration.

Nephrologists have always been considered among the best educators in medicine. Our commitment to excellence in patient care and research extends to finding innovative ways to teach students, residents, and fellows about some of the most complex (and interesting) issues physicians and scientists face.

As the first recipient of the American Society of Nephrology–Amos Medical Faculty Development Program (ASN-AMFDP) Award, Gentzon Hall, MD, PhD, intends to build on his current work in renal genomics, with a primary focus on hereditary focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Dr. Hall is a medical instructor in the Duke University Division of Nephrology.

It is a great pleasure to continue our series of “Distinguished Conversations” in recognition of ASN’s 50th anniversary. In each conversation, a leader in nephrology invites a mentor or esteemed colleague for a discussion of nephrology, past and future. This month Sharon Moe, MD, FASN, interviews Sharon Anderson, MD, FASN.
