The Controversies in Dialysis Access


The Controversies in Dialysis Access (CiDA)

meeting is the leading educational forum for surgeons, radiologists, nephrologists and medical staff who care for dialysis access patients. We embrace controversy, reject bias and invite input from faculty and attendees alike…This is what sets CiDA apart.

CiDA was founded on the belief that continuing medical education must also be entertaining and enjoyable. To keep things interesting, more than half of the CiDA meeting comprises lively debates and case presentations during which audience participation drives discussion to the heart of controversy. Question-and-answer sessions and interactive real-time audience polling ensure that all attendees have a voice during the meeting and can add their own experiences to the conversation.
