Recertification is a significant and evolving issue for practicing nephrologists. In response to physician complaints, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) has proposed a number of recent modifications to its Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program.

Data going back to the mid-1970s have suggested steady increases in the percentage of Americans with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD). But that may be changing, as an updated data analysis finds no significant increase in CKD in the US adult population since the early 2000s, according to an updated analysis of population-based data.

Nephrologists are leaders in medicine and science, but do we always define ourselves as such?

Once again, Kidney News brings together two outstanding clinicians, scientists, teachers, and leaders in nephrology and medicine in a “Distinguished Conversation.” Each has transformed the practice of nephrology with excellent examples of bed-to-bench problem-solving, bringing innovative care back to their own as well as to our patients.
