Kidney transplantation is a major advance of modern medicine which provides high-quality of life for patients with end-stage renal disease. What used to be an experimental, risky, and very limited treatment option more than 50 years ago is now routinely performed in many countries worldwide. The number of renal transplants is expected to rise sharply in the next decade since the proportion of patients with end stage renal disease is increasing.

Frequently Asked Questions
When will I have access to the lectures and assignments?
Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:
- The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
- The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
What will I get if I purchase the Certificate?
When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.
Is financial aid available?
Yes, Coursera provides financial aid to learners who cannot afford the fee. Apply for it by clicking on the Financial Aid link beneath the "Enroll" button on the left. You’ll be prompted to complete an application and will be notified if you are approved. Learn more.
What are CME credits?
Continuing Medical Education (CME) consists of educational activities that aim to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance in order to maintain competence and learn about new and developing areas of the medical field. Content for these programs is developed, reviewed, and delivered by faculty who are experts in their individual clinical areas. In various countries, a certain amount of CME-credit hours must be obtained by medical professionals to maintain their licenses.
For this course it is possible to obtain 5, 9 or 13 CME credit points. For more information on how to obtain these points we like to refer to the "Additional introduction for obtaining CME credit" module in week 1 of the course
Can I apply for CME credits if I have already finished the course previously?
Yes, if you have already done the course previously and obtained the Coursera official Course Certificate as proof we encourage you to apply for the CME credits. You can obtain 5 or 9 CME as follows:
1. Sign up for the course at “Boerhaave Continuous Medical Education” (https://www.boerhaavecontinuousmedicaleducation.com/)
2. Upload your Verified Certificate from Coursera (without honors 5 CME or with honors 9 CME). Pay the contribution according to “Boerhaave Continuous Medical Education." They will provide you with the instructions and add the CME credits to GAIA (Dutch participants) and/or provide you with a CME certificate (international participants)
