Nephrologists and Radiologists who place catheters are Invited to Register to Attend
PD University for Interventionalists
USF Health and The International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD) are pleased to announce that we will be jointly providing the PD University for Surgeons Courses.
Program Description
PD (Peritoneal Dialysis) University for Interventionalists is a two-fold approach to training nephrologists and radiologists who place catheters using image-guided techniques. The course consists of didactic lectures followed by comprehensive hands-on workshops. The hands on workshop sessions are designed to take the physician through the entire process of catheter placement; including pre-operative catheter exit site selection, catheter implantation, and exteriorization and dressing. The course is limited in size to maximize the learning experience and time for collaboration with the faculty.
Target Audience
This course is designed for surgeons with basic surgical experience, including sterile techniques (glove/gowning) and administering topical anesthetic, dissection and suturing.
Although there are no prerequisites for this course, it is designed for interventional nephrologists and interventional radiologists with basic PD catheter placement experience.
