30th Anniversary International Vicenza Course on Peritoneal Dialysis

12th - 15th June, 2012
Vicenza, Italy - Congress Center Fiera


In June 2012, The Department of Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation of the San Bortolo Hospital in Vicenza, and the International Renal Research Institute of Vicenza (IRRIV) are proud to organize the 30th International Vicenza Course on Peritoneal Dialysis. We started in 1982 with the first course in which we gathered the world experts in peritoneal dialysis to begin a long lasting tradition of science and education. Today, after 30 years, the success of the Vicenza Courses is unchanged and the quality of their content, the knowledge of the faculty and the interest of the audience have remained unmatched.

The 30th International Vicenza Course on Peritoneal dialysis will present a series of lectures dealing with anatomy and physiology of the peritoneal membrane, the most recent acquisitions in the area of peritoneal transport, the present and future techniques, new devices and dialysis solutions, as well as recently published or on-going clinical trials. One of the most attractive features of the course will be a thorough analysis of what has occurred in the field in the last 30 years, with the intent to learn from the past how the present developed and how the future will be shaped.

Do not miss this unique event in which you will be in touch with the world expert of peritoneal dialysis and you will share three days of science and experience with your colleagues from all over the world.

Major scientific societies and scientific institutions endorse this event to demonstrate their affection and their support for the course of today and for the Vicenza educational program of the last 30 years.

Come and see us in Vicenza in June 2012
