Designed for endocrinologists and interested internists and surgeons, Endocrine Update addresses gaps in medical knowledge and barriers in clinical practice to improve the outcomes of patients with endocrine and metabolic disorders. Topics span the full range of endocrinology through lectures, debates, panel discussions, clinicopathologic sessions, clinical pearls sessions, informal breakfast roundtable discussions and small-group discussions with experts. Attendees have plenty of opportunity for interaction with the course faculty, who are selected for their expertise and clinical acumen.

  • Case-based, interactive model that highlights multidisciplinary sessions in endocrine diseases and endocrine cancers, laboratory testing, disorders of calcium and bone, diabetes and obesity
  • Interactive tumor board sessions, with opportunities for case submissions from attendees (see below for more details and to submit your case)
  • Opportunities to interact with course faculty during breakfast roundtable discussion and small group discussions
  • Apply what you learn immediately into your practice
  • New!  Access to course recordings after the course

Submitting a case for the Tumor Board Sessions is now closed.   We are reviewing all submissions and hope to have our final decision on or before December 21, 2018. 

Tumor Case Guidelines

We invite you to take advantage of a unique opportunity and be a presenter at our Oncology Board Sessions held on Monday February 11th and Wednesday February 13th!

Participants are encouraged to submit a case that presents a diagnostic and/or therapeutic challenge in the management of endocrine tumors and/or cancers (thyroid, neuroendocrine) to a panel of experts.  Our experts represent the fields of endocrinology, surgery, pathology and oncology.  Our panelists will share their expertise and unique insights about your case.  We are confident this session will be a great learning opportunity for all.  Cases can represent a broad range of common and/or uncommon endocrine tumors, such as cytology of thyroid nodules or questions on the management of metastatic thyroid cancers or adrenal tumors.
