New in 2018: Advanced Endocrine Surgery Course

Ready to take your skills to the next level? The Association of Endocrine Surgeons is offering a new course that will help you enhance your clinical practice of endocrine surgery. 

Participate in an engaging, realistic setting while a multi-disciplinary panel of experts highlights the nuances of complex decision making. Panelists will be unaware of the real-life clinical scenarios presented which creates a more practical approach and lends itself well to learning objectives of practicing surgeons with a special interest in thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal disease.

If you are a health care provider in the field of general surgery, endocrine surgery, head and neck surgery and otolaryngology, take advantage of this exciting, new educational opportunity! This is a great opportunity for CME. Register today! Space is limited to 50 attendees.

Course Objectives:

  • Discuss management of benign thyroid disease
  • Review of current evaluation and management of well differentiated thyroid malignancy.
  • Review current standards of care for management of poorly differentiated/medullary thyroid cancer, including familial conditions.
  • Explore complications of neck surgery and nuances of re-operative neck surgery.
  • Evaluation and management of patients with hyperparathyroidism, including persistent and recurrent disease.
  • Discuss evaluation and management of incidental and hormonally active adrenal lesions, including operative approaches and technical pearls.
