Program Purpose / Objectives

This seminar will provide a working knowledge of common endocrinological problems. The course will reinforce physiology, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and management of most major endocrine disorders. The current treatment for these disorders will be developed in sufficient detail to permit independent management or active participation in care with the endocrinologist. Emphasis will be placed on clinical diagnosis and practical treatment with attention to evidence-based medicine.

Upon completion, participants should be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of most endocrinopathies; educate their patients regarding the basic concepts and natural history of these diseases and participate with their patients and consulting endocrinologists in decisions regarding modern disease therapy and prevention. This seminar will be relevant to family physicians, general internists, endocrinologists and others who manage patients with endocrinological disorders.
