At our institution we have developed unique ways of teaching nephrology and attracting medical students and residents to the field of nephrology. One of the ways we have achieved this is doing talks and sessions using puzzles. This teaching tool was designed to enhance resident learning and to complement resident's role as a teacher, while they were on their nephrology elective. Here we present a sample "anagram" and how it was used to teach the medical residents.
