Read what a recent course participant had to say about his experience with the Hemodialysis Academy:
I definitely found the quality of the course to be as good as any I have experienced despite the fact that it was all online. The foundation of knowledge that was provided was outstanding and the level of commitment from the instructors was really impressive - especially from Dr. Larry Cowgill. The "pearls of wisdom" that came from the formal lectures, and even more form the rounds sessions, was information that will not be found in text somewhere - priceless information. Having these skills is definitely a way to separate myself from the growing pack of internists. I will attend the next HD academy as well. Seth Ghantous, DVM, DACVIM (Internal Medicine)
