CAS/DAS in Translational Nephrology

The postgraduate programme in translational nephrology was developed in the context of the NCCR Kidney.CH in cooperation with the IKPP programme and the Health Sciences e-Training (HSeT) Foundation.

5 different modules provide relevant insights into the basics of nephrology by studying the the genetic, morphological, and functional basis of kidney function in health and disease. Starting with key articles from the literature and with clinical cases illustrating the translational aspects, the relevant topics are explored by blended-learning including face-to-face sessions with module leaders and tutors, oral presentations, access to annotated online-resources, self-guided learning, and assessments.

After successful participation and depending on the achieved ECTS-points, the participating Universities award the degree “Certificate of Advanced Studies” (CAS) or “Diploma of Advanced Studies” (DAS).

Integrative Kidney Physiology and Pathophysiology (IKPP)

The International Fellowship Programme on Integrative Kidney Physiology and Pathophysiology (IKPP), is a postdoctoral programme co-funded by the 7th framework programme (FP7) of the European Commission.
Our educational and research programme strengthens integrative thinking and awareness for kidney-dependent homeostatic systems and increases corresponding theoretical and practical skills among young scientists and physicians.

The programme offers 2-years fellowships for excellent, international kidney researchers, who aim to conduct their research in Switzerland. The programme has been very successful and has therefore received funding from the European Commission for a second phase.
