8th ANZSIN Meeting: To register CLICK HERE

To be held at the QT Hotel in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, on 9th-11th September 2015. The aim of ANZSIN is to promote procedural nephrology as a way of improving our patient outcomes. The annual meeting is a mechanism to promote interventional nephrology, share new ideas and improve current procedural techniques.

The programme commences with a Welcome Dinner on the Wednesday evening moving into a full day lecture symposium on Thursday and concludes with hands on demonstrations and workshops. The programme sessions are targeted at nephrologists and nurses practicing in Interventional Nephrology.

View the ANZSIN 2015 program here.
