ASDIN is pleased to announce a new partnership with the International Society of Nephrology (ISN). This is a big achievement that has been in the works for the past year led by Dr. Tushar Vachharajani, Chair of ASDIN’s International Committee. This partnership will increase ASDIN’s international presence and open up new doors for vascular access across the globe. There will be shared ISN-ASDIN branding for World Congress of Nephrology workshops in the future. ASDIN and ISN representatives have been named to facilitate communication and implement the educational exchange program moving forward. ASDIN is looking forward to this new relationship that will provide great opportunities for ASDIN and ISN in the future.

You may have received a very interesting email from the ABIM about their recognition of the need for changes in the MOC process. Board recertification has been a particular challenge for interventional nephrologists because of the lack of recognition within ABIM certification of CME and educational opportunities related specifically to our field of expertise. This has been a concern for some time, and has generated much discussion in the ASDIN Education and Public Policy Committees. ASDIN will be reaching out to the ABIM during this time of re-evaluation to try to bring greater opportunities for interventional nephrologists to maintain certification moving forward. We would welcome your input and comments.
