Medical knowledge and patient complexity are rapidly growing, particularly in nephrology, one of the most complex medical sub-specialties (1). This complexity allows for diversity in practice as nephrologists often develop niche areas of expertise including glomerular diseases, home dialysis, and transplantation, among others. Glomerular diseases are a particularly stimulating aspect of nephrology. The multi-systemic nature of these diseases tends to elicit interest from individuals with a strong intellectual curiosity. The ability to effectively treat glomerular diseases, in some cases warding off kidney failure, can make it an extremely rewarding process. In addition, the chronic nature of these diseases
