About the Course

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. Are you interested in clinical kidney, pancreas and islet transplantation? If you are a (bio) medical student or a health care professional who works in the (pre) clinical transplant field this might be the course for you. This course is also for anyone interested in the research and knowledge on clinical transplantation. The course will be taught by a multidisciplinary team of transplant professionals and will give you the state of the art updates. It is divided in 4 modules: 1) Before the transplant 2) The surgical procedures and the challenged patient, including the patient with diabetes 3) Early challenges 4) Late challenges after transplantation. The offered modules will include lectures, interactive patient cases, 3D movies, interviews with well-known experts and with patients and a donor, a serious game to increase knowledge of the field and of course an active forum. Become an expert and join us! The course is endorsed by The European Society of Organ Transplantation (ESOT), The International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and The Transplantation Society (TTS). This MOOC has been accredited for Continuing Medical Education (CME). Health care professionals who works in the (pre) clinical transplant field, other health care professionals and general practitioners can obtain CME credit at 'LUMC-Boerhaave CME' upon passing the course. For more information we like to refer to the "Additional introduction for obtaining CME credit" module in week 1 of the course For another interesting course on organ donation and transplantation, see Organ Donation: From Death to Life from Cape Town University https://www.coursera.org/learn/organ-donation...

Very useful for all the users, who are not still working in the transplantation field: for those people this course is perhaps too superficial.

The course benefits from the excellent quality of the lectures by superb staff of the LUMC. The videos and images were of high quality and irrefutably aided in the understanding of the difficult field of transplantation immunology. I highly recommend following this course. The pace was just right and because the user can decide on his/her own planning, it can easily be combined with other activities. The tests were of varying difficulty, the final test clearly being much more difficult than the other tests combined.

Very well structured, gives basic knowledge and additional assignments to explore the subject. To go into details time schedule is sometimes a limit but possibility to continue in next section and finish the course can be a solution. Discussion forums and practical examples helped a lot.

I really enjoyed this course.

A great course to understand the procedure for non-medicos

Sometimes hard to understand the speakers.

The medical knowledge is also assumed to be relatively high, with no references to some of the terminology and background reading material that can bring one up to speed.
