Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project without Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
Cardiovascular complications are the first cause of morbidity in chronic kidney disease patients, even in asymptomatic ones. However, studies proving the correlated relationship between the two are not developed enough in Morocco, which make the health care provided to Chronic Kidney Disease patients, as well as their education, not efficient enough to prevent cardiovascular complications.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim is To assess the prevalence and infer the risk factors of cardiovascular disease in chronic kidney disease patients;
What techniques and methods are used?
1. Clinical examination 2. Electrocardiogram (ECG) 3. Cardiac ultrasound (ETT )
What is the role of the student?
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
1/to treat in-patient records in the renal disease department for nephrology, 2/to study the cardiovascular complications of chronic kidney disease and to study their prevalence and incidence. 3/to know the various cardiovascular complications of chronic renal diseases, 4/To research and to treat the files of patients followed for chronic renal disease, 5/To distinguish the patients who presented cardiovascular complications during their disease from those who did not have one, 6/To carry out a study descriptive and analytical about these complications.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a poster
- The student will prepare a scientific report
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
There is no specific skills required, except being a medical student willing to participate in this program with an interest of reasearch.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
