Renal Biopsy Discussion

Assignments: Students may choose a test to research from the following list. However, only two initial postings per test is allowed. If you are the third person to post for a specific test, I will deduct points. The earlier you post your initial posting the more choices you will have. Please try to cover as many tests as possible within the class. Your initial posting is worth 15 points and remember to earn full credit you will need to respond to at least two classmates postings. These responses must include citations and further the conversation. If your responses are not scholarly in nature, you will not receive points. Please do not just “agree” or state “I did not know this”.
