As in past years, the conference hall was overflowing with interested udience members. Topics covered by expert discussants included electrolyte and acid ase disorders, glomerular isease, ESRD/dialysis, and transplantation. Complex cases representing each of eseategories along ith single best answer questions were prepared by a panel of experts. Before the eeting, program directors of nited States nephrology training programs answered questions through an Internet ased questionnaire. A ew addition to the nephrology quiz and questionnaire was participation in the questionnaire by nephrology fellows. To review the process, members of the audience test their knowledge and judgment on a series of caseoriented questions prepared and discussed by experts. Their answers are compared in real time using audience response devices with the answers of nephrology fellows and training program directors. The correct and incorrect answers are then briefly discussed after the audience responds, and the results of the questionnaire are displayed. This article recapitulates the session and reproduces its educational value for the readers of CJASN. Enjoy the clinical cases and expert discussions.
