Welcome to the website of the Advanced Studies in Translational Nephrology

Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) and Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) in Translational Nephrology


The programme will provide relevant insights into the basics of nephrology by studying the physiological and pathophysiological bases of kidney function in health and disease. Starting with key articles from the literature and with clinical cases illustrating the translational aspects, the relevant topics will be explored by distance e-learning modules including face-to-face sessions (blended teaching) with module leaders and tutors, access to annotated online-resources, self-guided learning, presentations, and assessments.


This eTraining website is designed for participants of the:

  • Advanced Studies in Translational Nephrology CAS/DAS
  • Education and Training Program of the NCCR Kidney.CH network NCCR Kidney.CH


This eTraining website offers training material (courses, animations, clinical case studies, annotated articles, virtual microscope and quizzes) aimed at supporting learners' experience. The eTraining website is the result of a collaborative effort between NCCR Kidney.CH, Health Sciences e-Training (HSeT) Foundation and the Swiss Universities of Bern (leading house), Zurich, Lausanne and Geneva.
