ASN honors the 2020 Midcareer Award recipients. ASN congratulates the following individuals for their exemplary work and achievements.

Derek M. Fine, MD, and Vandana Dua Niyyar, MD, FASN, will receive the ASN Distinguished Clinical Service Award, which recognizes individuals who combine the art of medicine with the skills demanded by the scientific body of knowledge in service to patients. The award also recognizes those who exemplify leadership and excellence in the practice of nephrology and those who have initiated or been involved in volunteer programs or have provided volunteer service post-training.

On July 27, 2020, the governing bodies of Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Accreditation Program (ANCC) granted the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) with Joint Accreditation for 6 years.

What does this mean for ASN and the community it serves? ASN is now simultaneously accredited to provide medical, nursing and pharmacy continuing education activities through a single process, without needing to obtain separate accreditations.

People who succeed in nephrology exemplify the best in all of us. They relish the intellectual rigor required to advance such a complex area of study and practice; they approach treatment and research challenges with creativity and tenacity, and work daily to enhance quality of life for millions. Most important, kidney professionals imbue their work with compassion and respect for the people whose lives they improve through research, education, and clinical excellence.
