Brief History of the Turkish Society of Nephrology

When the Turkish Society of Nephrology (TSN) was founded in Istanbul in 1970, it coincided with that of many of the Western European Nephrology Societies. TSN successfully organized the 15th ERA-EDTA Congress in Istanbul in 1978, earlier than many European countries. On 4-7 June 2005 it has also hosted in Istanbul the 42nd ERA-EDTA Congress that broke prior records for abstract submission (1959) & participation (6135 delegates). Finally, TSN has hosted on 21-25 June 2008 the very successful 12th Congress of ISPD in Istanbul.

Currently, TSN has 384 active members and also 8 branches with their own separate memberships in Istanbul, Izmir, Kayseri, Antalya, Bursa, Konya, Adana and Ankara. Turkish membership has actually become the 8th largest in ISN & the 6th largest in ERA-EDTA.
