Kidney transplantation is a major advance of modern medicine which provides high-quality of life for patients with end-stage renal disease. What used to be an experimental, risky, and very limited treatment option more than 50 years ago is now routinely performed in many countries worldwide. The number of renal transplants is expected to rise sharply in the next decade since the proportion of patients with end stage renal disease is increasing.

What are CME credits?
Continuing Medical Education (CME) consists of educational activities that aim to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance in order to maintain competence and learn about new and developing areas of the medical field. Content for these programs is developed, reviewed, and delivered by faculty who are experts in their individual clinical areas. In various countries, a certain amount of CME-credit hours must be obtained by medical professionals to maintain their licenses.
For this course it is possible to obtain 5, 9 or 13 CME credit points. For more information on how to obtain these points we like to refer to the "Additional introduction for obtaining CME credit" module in week 1 of the course
