More than 150 medical specialists are expected to attend the two-day conference to hear the latest in medical thinking around hormones at Imperial College London Diabetes Centre (ICLDC) in January.
According to Professor Karim Meeran, a specialist consultant with ICLDC, the programme is designed to give a rigorous update on current clinical practice, research and thinking in the world of hormones, with a focus on their role in the prevalence of diabetes and related complications.
"The conference will be of tremendous value to endocrinologists, as well as to medical practitioners who have a specific interest in diabetes management," he said, indicating that delegates can expect to hear intensive reviews of the cutting-edge of clinical endocrinology, as well as participating in themed clinical workshops.
Meanwhile, Professor Philippe Bouchard, the President of ESE and a leading professor and author with more than 300 published works on endocrinology under his belt, confirmed that the intensive programme is structured over 24 sessions and workshops delivered by sector experts such as UK's Professor Peter Trainer, Professor Wilmar Wiersinga from The Netherlands and ICLDC's Medical & Research Director and Consultant Endocrinologist, Dr Maha Taysir Barakat. He said that topics will include the latest thinking on thyroid, calcium metabolism, as well as the metabolic syndrome.
"We're delighted to be holding the ESE Clinical Update Course in the UAE," said Professor Bouchard, who is also speaking at the event. "This is our first ever meeting held outside of Europe and we hope it will serve as a platform for trainees and established endocrinologists to exchange ideas and share the challenges encountered in their respective regions. This innovative course will provide delegates with the perfect opportunity to learn more about the latest thinking across the breadth of clinical endocrinology."
The ESE Clinical Update Course in Abu Dhabi will run on January 11-12 2013. It is the third in an annual programme of international events providing essential training for all trainees and an update for established endocrinologists.
