Through the Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program, ISN supports faculty to present talks and workshops at regional nephrology-related meetings, bringing expert speakers together from around the world to share knowledge and experience in clinical care and research.



1. ISN membership:
It is a key requirement that both the meeting organizers and speakers are ISN full/associate members in good standing. Priority consideration will be given to organizing societies that are affiliated with the ISN.

2. Meeting organizers’ Country Classification as per World Bank
Applications are thus open to meeting organizers that are ISN members from lower, lowermiddle, and upper-middle income countries according to World Bank classification.

3. Scientific program & target audience:
A formal scientific program of the meeting must be provided (even if preliminary) and target an attendance of at least 100 participants (preferably with an international/regional scope). Classroom type courses for in-house faculty are not considered eligible. A one-day CME meeting can be incorporated into a national or international conference of nephrology. A stand-alone meeting should have a program of at least 2 full days.

4. Speakers:
Although speakers may be suggested by meeting organizers, the CME Committee will take such suggestion under advisement only and will have the final word on the sponsored speakers. Relevant topics and needs of the region must be clearly addressed in the application. Selected and sponsored speakers may be either local, regional, or international. Support requested for international speakers may be limited to one. Local and regional experts are therefore preferred.

• Application documents:
Meeting organizers are requested to submit the duly completed CME application form together with the (draft) scientific program of the meeting at least 3 months prior to the start of the meeting. They must clearly indicate the topics for which they need ISN support and may suggest names of speakers. 

Read the guidelines carefully. If you fit all the criteria, download the application form and send, along with the program outline, to
