Excellent lecture
By Jalil Z. on 26. July 2020 for Workup of Proteinuria and Nephrotic Syndrome in Children

Crystal clear and focused on the most important aspect for a pediatrics resident. I also liked that Dr. Alverson expanded on the secondary effects of steroids.

 
Excellent lecture
By Jalil Z. on 26. July 2020 for Tubular Proteinuria and Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS)

I liked the fact that the teacher focussed on the most important differential diagnosis and the criteria between tubular and glomeural causes were clear.
