Description: The objective of this course is to provide an update for endocrinologists and to allow internists and other health care providers to be comfortable with clinical problems in endocrinology. We will present our approach to such common problems as Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, pituitary tumors, hypercholesterolemia, osteoporosis, the menopause, thyroid abnormalities, reproductive dysfunction, as well as a broad spectrum of other clinical problems in endocrinology. The faculty is carefully selected for its teaching ability, clinical expertise, and knowledge of the most recent advances in endocrinology. Each day is organized around one of the major topics to be covered: pituitary disease on Saturday, reproductive and adrenal disorders on Sunday, calcium and bone disorders on Monday, thyroid disease on Tuesday, and diabetes, obesity and lipids on Wednesday. Special emphasis is given to the case study method in evening problem sessions on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. A comprehensive flash drive and/or syllabus is provided.

This update in Endocrinology has been given for 40 years by the staff of the Endocrine Division of Massachusetts General Hospital with selected guest speakers from around the country. Last year we had attendees from 32 US states and territories, from Canada and 39 other countries. Course participants are asked to fill out an extensive evaluation form that covers all aspects of the course.
