2018 West Lake Forum Wrap-Up

Our 7th Nephrology Update West Lake Forum surpassed all expectations. Attendance reached a record 1300 as academicians and practitioners travelled not only from Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, Guangzhou,Nanjing and Hangzhou but nearly one third represented such remote areas of Chinaas Yunnan, Xinjiang and Mongolia.

The educational value of the programs continues to be exceptionally high. According to our Chinese colleagues, the annual Forums are beginning to exert a positive impact throughout China on the practice of nephrology and the quality of research in the field.

Led by Dr. Qi Qian of Mayo Clinic, the Forum faculty included distinguished international speakers from the United States, Italy and France as well as renowned nephrologists from throughout China (see attached course syllabus).Plenary lecture sessions andmeet-the-faculty group discussions again proved highlights of the program and informal networking during coffee breaks and lunches offered valuable opportunities for attendees to networking and share views.
