The Macedonian Society of Nephrology, Dialysis, Transplantation and Artificial Organs (MSNDTAO) proclaimed the First Protocol for Performing Nephrological Activity in the Republic of Macedonia at the First Congress of the MSNDTAO, held in Ohrid 1993, and it was published in the Macedonian Medical Review, 1994; Supplement 14: 397–406 . The update of the Protocol for Performing Nephrological Activity in the Republic of Macedonia was proclaimed at the Fourth Congress of MSNDTAO, held in Ohrid 2012 and it presented in this text.
