NephMadness is a nephrology-focused online interactive medical education activity. While it has been around for 6 years, this is the first year that CME/CE credit will be offered for players! Social media, interactivity, and gamification will teach the latest advances and the most important breakthroughs in nephrology.
There are 8 general themes (called “regions”) broken down into 4 specific concepts (called “teams”). Teams compete against each other in a single elimination contest. We have selected content experts from each region to make sure the information we present is accurate, unbiased, and interesting. For details, read the explanatory post here
