Accreditation of Renal Educational Programmes
Accreditation of Nephrology Education
The EDTNA/ERCA is committed to the standardisation and promotion of ‘quality’ Nephrology Education. It evaluates and accredits educational activities offered to renal practitioners by education institutes, health service providers and industry partners across Europe. EDTNA/ERCA accredits programmes of Nephrology Education within Europe for 1 year & 3 years.
Accreditation & Endorsement Project
The accreditation and endorsement project continues to provide opportunities for universities, colleges, and hospitals offering educational programmes to seek formal recognition for the quality of education provided. The accreditation programme requires applicants to provide specific evidence to meet the standards required to achieve accreditation. Presently, universities and schools of nursing from the United Kingdom (UK), Germany, Finland, and Portugal have received successful accreditation.

If you are interested in seeking further information regarding accreditation or endorsement please contact Secretariat at
The Benefits of Having your Educational Activities Accredited
It is a recognisable system of evaluating renal education across Europe. A Sign of ‘quality’ in Nephrology education and so attracts potential students. Education institutes, health service providers and industry partners are allowed to use the EDTNA/ERCA logo on all documentation related to the accredited Educational activity. This is seen as a stamp of recognition that the activity meets the quality criteria set down by the EDTNA/ERCA. Currently a number of countries and industry partners have education programmes accredited by the EDTNA/ERCA.
