Dear colleagues and friends,
We inform you that the 1st Belgrade Masterclass in Clinical Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, the first postgraduate program of this kind, will be held in Belgrade from 4 to 6 April 2019 at the Hilton hotel.
The idea for organizing the Masterclass originated from the need for a specialized educational program to provide new and practical knowledge in the field of clinical endocrinology, diabetes and metabolic diseases. Masterclass is dedicated to clinical endocrinologists and those in-training, and to all other specialist in related fields interested for endocrinology.
Modern education in clinical endocrinology consider an integrated approach for recognition and defining the problem, establishing proper diagnosis and pragmatic therapeutic decisions for the complex clinical cases. Increasing demands in differential diagnosis and numerous novelties in the therapeutic approach make clinical endocrinology, including diabetes and metabolic diseases, difficult to perceive algorithmic. Therefore, the necessity of individual approach required the need for such a type of education that will allow participants to find a quicker and easier way to the current problems in the field of clinical endocrinology.
In order to find an appropriate way to educate in the management of complex problems in clinical endocrinology, it is envisaged for the Masterclass to be organized in panel presentations and discussions.
Participants will be conducted through the actual problems of all relevant areas of clinical endocrinology including neuroendocrinology and neuroendocrine tumors, thyroid and adrenal diseases, obesity and metabolic disorders, diabetes, male and female reproductive disorders and osteoporosis. Panelists will be leading endocrinologists and experts in related fields from Serbia, region and Europe. After panel discussions, experts will analyze appropriate clinical problems and cases together with the participants divided into smaller groups.
In addition to the scientific program, the experts and Masterclass attendees will be able to share experiences and socialize together. As the name of the program requires, art in the approach to endocrinology will certainly impact the atmosphere at the Belgrade Hilton hotel as well the bohemian charm of Belgrade that the participants will experience during Masterclass.
On behalf of the Program and Organizing Committees of this postgraduate program, I invite you to take part in the First Belgrade Masterclass in Clinical Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism and wish a warm welcome to cosmopolitan Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.
