Accreditation of Nephrology Education

The EDTNA/ERCA is committed to the standardisation and promotion of ‘quality’ Nephrology Education. It evaluates and accredits educational activities offered to renal practitioners by education institutes, health service providers and industry partners across Europe. EDTNA/ERCA accredits programmes of Nephrology Education within Europe for 1 year & 3 years.

The Benefits of Having your Educational Activities Accredited

It is a recognisable system of evaluating renal education across Europe. A Sign of ‘quality’ in Nephrology education and so attracts potential students. Education institutes, health service providers and industry partners are allowed to use the EDTNA/ERCA logo on all documentation related to the accredited Educational activity. This is seen as a stamp of recognition that the activity meets the quality criteria set down by the EDTNA/ERCA. Currently a number of countries and industry partners have education programmes accredited by the EDTNA/ERCA.
