Dear Colleague,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 16th Budapest Nephrology School organized in conjunction with the 7th International Symposium on Wine and Health and on the occasion of the 4th World Kidney Day.
During this one-week program, our distinguished international speakers provide updates in nephrology, hypertension, dialysis and transplantation. We cover the field from molecule to bedside, from the most recent scientific advances to the current clinical approaches. You will also enjoy close interaction with the faculty in small group workshops. You are encouraged to present your poster, raise questions and consult your colleagues on problematic cases. You are also invited to visit our quality dialysis and research units.
We have acted, based on the experience from previous successful years, to keep our standards high, invite internationally known speakers, provide the most optimal environment, encourage interaction and at the same time reduce the participation fee to the minimum. Our success is reflected by the increasing number of participants who have repeatedly attended the school. I hope that the commitment of my colleagues have successfully provided the best conditions for you to learn during this week. I also hope that you will enjoy our exciting social programs in Budapest. You should not forget about the 7th International Symposium on Wine and Health, an important event where you will taste quality Hungarian wines. Wine is not only important to Hungarians but it has a several thousand-year history in mankind’s life. Although, there are 24 historical vineyards in our country, among them such famous places as Tokaj, Villány, Badacsony, and the long culture and tradition of wine consumption, there is a high incidence of cardiovascular disease with the resultant serious decrease in life expectancy in this region.
The 16th Budapest Nephrology School is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) for 40 CME credits. The Course includes 43 hours of scientific lectures and a final examination which can be locally evaluated according to national standards (in Hungary it is equal to 50 CME credits).

Sincerely yours,

Commentary

„…, it is a pleasure for the International Society of Nephrology to recognize the tradition established by Dr. Rosivall and his colleagues in the heart of Europe, servicing so many colleagues in their quest for knowledge. Experts from various parts of the world have contributed to render the Budapest School into one of the best of its kind. We congratulate Dr. Rosivall on this momentous achievement.”

Jan J. Weening, Past President of ISN

„As a President of ERA-EDTA association I’m very proud that our Society is a sponsor of the Budapest Nephrology School that next year will celebrate the 10th Anniversary. The best comment about the quality of this school come from a letter I received from one of the participants at last school "I was fortunate to be one of the sponsored delegate by the ERA. I do not have any words to express my sincere gratitude to the ERA and especially you for considering me for the grant from ERA.” I do believe there are no other words to add!”

Francesco Locatelli, Past President of ERA-EDTA

„The Semmelweis University under the dedicated leadership of Professor Rosivall has developed the tradition of an annual Nephrology Summer School in Budapest… The panel of experts is impressive and has included some of the top leaders of nephrology in the world. In recognition of the high standard of this meeting, both the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the European Renal Association (ERA) co-sponsor this important event.”

Eberhard Ritz, President Elect of ISN

„Great work, worth to recommend to colleagues.”
