This module first covers the essential anatomy and physiology of the renal system. We then go through the various types of simple investigations which give us an insight into the renal functions – including blood tests and the all important urine dipstick. We then take a deeper look into some of the imaging used and procedures like dialysis and renal transplants. A large section then involves studying acute vs chronic renal failure, understanding nephrotic vs nephritic syndrome and then looking at urinary tract infections and cancers.
