The Young Nephrologists’ Platform (YNP) is a network for all nephrologists who are 40 years of age or younger. YNP is an essential part of the community of ERA members. It aims to engage a young community of members in several initiatives addressed to young nephrologists.
We want to empower the new generations of nephrologists facilitating collaboration and being part of their professional and career development.
Join YNP and make this community grow!
All ERA Junior Members automatically become YNP Members.
Join the YNP committee
Enjoy the exclusive benefits reserved to ERA members. Young members automatically are YNP Members: nephrologists, 40 years of age or younger, working in the areas of interest of the ERA.
YNP aims to keep close contact with the national societies of all countries. In order to achieve this close collaboration, YNP intends to have one representative per country.
If you wish to get in contact with the National Representatives or you wish to become a YNP representative contact us.
