The Renal Disorders course covers the genitourinary system and the kidneys. While the kidneys are part of the genitourinary system, this topic will focus on diseases and disorders that affect the kidney. We will cover how the diseases are diagnosed, the treatment required, the complications and risk factors and how each of these aspects of the disease increases the mortality risk.
