Home Dialysis Project (HDP)

HDP Overview

To improve awareness and outcomes of home dialysis therapies by enhancing education of nephrologists, kidney care professionals, and trainees; addressing disparities in access to home dialysis; and advocating for policies that improve patient-centered modality choice in order to promote safe and high-quality care.


ASN Home Dialysis University (HDU) Scholarship Application


In collaboration with HDU, ASN has created a scholarship program for second and third year fellows to improve nephrology trainees’ knowledge, proficiency, and exposure to home dialysis therapies. Thirty scholarship recipients will:

  1. Receive complimentary registration and travel support to attend an in-person HDU course in the Fall of 2023.
  2. Participate in a 12-month virtual educational series designed to provide in-depth training on home dialysis therapies.

The HDU course is highly regarded by fellows who have attended:

 “The conference is one of the best conferences that I have ever attended, and I would strongly recommend it to my co-fellows and APRN colleagues. I honestly learned more about PD and SDHD in the past 2 days than I ever did.”

“I will be starting to practice on my own next year, and this conference gives me the confidence to do home dialysis.”
