Course Description

This course is designed for practicing endocrinologists and primary care providers. The topics selected are common clinical problems that have resisted clear resolution. Leading experts have been gathered to discuss these issues in a casual atmosphere in order to promote open debate and clarification of the issues. All participants, including faculty and trainees, should benefit.

At the conclusion of the program, participants should have enhanced knowledge of current clinical problems in metabolic and endocrine disorders.

New this year! On Wednesday July 29th starting at 5pm, join us for an optional ABIM MOC Endocrine module and dinner. Pre-Registration is required.
