About the Course
More than 90% of the excretory function of the body is carried out by renal system. Apart from formation of urine, it is also responsible for acid – base balance and regulation of water and sodium levels in the body.
This unique modular course on renal physiology is aimed at integrating physiological principles with day-to-day clinical practice to enable you apply “thinking physiology” at the bedside. It features an exquisite collection of graphics and animations that are seamlessly integrated into the informative lectures delivered by our esteemed faculty.
In this course, we will look at the functional anatomy of urinary system, the glomerular function, formation of urine, regulation of body water and sodium by the kidney, renal regulation of acid-base balance, the urinary bladder and the pathophysiology of kidney diseases.

Course Delivery Format
This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams. While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.
While this course is to help you learn the subject from an online faculty, it may help you in several ways even if you are already enrolled in some medical, dental or paramedical school. Many of our students felt that the format in which this course is delivered has helped them to cope up against the fast paced lectures in actual class – it’s like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher. Animations help understand concepts better by making concepts easy to understand… and difficult to forget.
