About this event

  • Date and time Thu 12 Sep 2019 from 9:30am to 4:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Endocrinology and Diabetes

Receive a comprehensive update on new outcomes from clinical trials in Endocrinology and a new understanding of pathogenetic mechanisms.

This unique event provides a full CME program across the spectrum of Diabetes and Endocrinology. In a fast-moving field, it is impossible to keep up with the latest trials and understand how they will affect clinical practice. The yearbook is the answer to this never-ending problem. Experts in the field will review new research and treatments that have excited them most over the past two years. 

In addition to the mainstream topics of diabetes, thyroid pathology and pituitary disease, selected specialist topics such as male fertility and Turner Syndrome will be visited by experts in these conditions.

This event is a great opportunity to network with colleagues and take part in an interactive discussion of hot topics.

Meeting topics:

- Treatment combinations in Type 1 diabetes
- New insights into gestational diabetes
- Oestrogen replacements for young women
- Thyroid ultrasound
