Endocrine University Disease Management & Technology Skills for Endocrinology Fellows in Training

March 3, 2018 to March 8, 2018

The field of clinical endocrinology is extremely diverse considering the multiple disease states endocrinologists must diagnose and manage on a daily basis (e.g., diabetes, thyroid, osteoporosis, lipids, reproduction, pituitary, obesity, hypertension, etc.).  Endocrinology fellows -in-training and their endocrine training program directors have recognized a growing need to significantly enhance the endocrine curriculum, particularly in those areas where new technology has become essential to the practice of endocrinology. Regrettably, the majority of the endocrine training programs lack the resources necessary to provide adequate education in these areas. This deficiency is apparent by virtue of the overwhelming response by AACE members who have registered for existing accreditation/certification courses provided by AACE and ACE since 1995, and by our endocrinology fellow members who have indicated a need for a comprehensive course that fills this educational void.

Target Audience

This program is specifically designed for Final Year Endocrine Fellows in Training.

Learning Objectives

  • Provide final year endocrinology fellows with training in areas where new technology has become essential to the practice of endocrinology.
  • Further educate fellows in Bone Mass Measurement with the eventual option for obtaining certification.  Further educate fellows utilizing hands on training in the areas of Thyroid Ultrasound / FNA Biopsy and Insulin Pump Therapy.
  • Provide a comprehensive course to endocrinology fellows that will address educational areas, which are not adequately covered in their respective training programs.
