There is a huge burden of renal diseases and dearth of well-trained healthcare workers to look after these patients because of ‘Brain drain’, lack of specific training programs and high cost of training (which is not affordable by youth from lower socio-economic background). All our trainees receive a stipend and no fee is charged.
