Society’s EBR and CEU Meetings Offer Targeted Training in Cutting-Edge Endocrine Practices

July 31, 2023

By Society Staff

We’ve got your back! 

At the Society, we understand the pressure that our rising clinical members feel when approaching their board exams to become certified endocrinologists. We also understand the pressure that our seasoned clinical members feel to stay abreast of the field’s latest developments and obtain their continuing education requirements.

These understandings are the foundation of both our Endocrine Board Review (EBR) and Clinical Endocrinology Update (CEU) programs. Simply put, EBR and CEU are designed to help you succeed. 

Both online meetings are coming soon: EBR 2023 takes place September 8-10, and CEU 2023 will be held September 21-23.

As they were last year, EBR 2023 and CEU 2023 will be held virtually, a format that we know allows members to save money on travel and lodging. It also allows us to better serve all of our members who hail from around the globe. For example, CEU 2022 drew almost 1,000 attendees from more than 30 countries.

Endocrine Board Review (EBR) 2023 : Endocrinology’s Leading Certification Training Program

EBR has long been recognized as the leading training program for individuals taking the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Endocrinology, Diabetes, & Metabolism Certification Exam, the crucial test for certification or recertification in endocrinology. The ABIM exam will be held October 24, 2023.

We know that preparing for the board examination can be an intimidating process, which can leave participants feeling overwhelmed about where to even begin. EBR serves as a guide, dividing up the exam into more manageable sections. 

Taking our training course just a few short weeks ahead of this exam will help you earn a top score on the test. Even better, EBR is led by experts who have helped develop the ABIM test itself. They know what to expect.

EBR 2023 includes key components to assure you obtain the highest score:

  • The Endocrine Board Review (2023) 15th Edition Book: This book includes 220 case-based questions and answers to guide your studies. Questions and cases are based on similar content that will be in the certification exam. 
  • Interactive Online Practice Exam: Participants can access 220 questions that will evaluate their knowledge in key topic areas and prepare them to make appropriate diagnoses. Participants also can submit questions to the faculty on specific questions that will be addressed during the live Q&A sessions.
  • Live Topical Q&A Sessions: Our EBR faculty will be available for live Q&A sessions each day. All are nationally recognized experts in their endocrinology subspecialities. The faculty includes individuals who have helped design the board certification exams from previous years. They know their stuff.

We are so confident that EBR will lead you to success on the ABIM’s Endocrinology, Diabetes, & Metabolism Certification Exam that we guarantee a passing score, or you will receive a free registration for EBR 2024.

Clinical Endocrinology Update (CEU) 2023: Learn the Latest in Clinical Treatments

CEU 2023 offers participants the latest information on clinical developments in endocrinology from the brightest minds in the field. Our much-anticipated three-day program features 37 live sessions presented by 41 experts. Our faculty will provide updates on the latest treatment guidelines for hormone health. 

In nine hours of live programming, participants will gain knowledge of topical areas including adrenal, calcium and bone, diabetes mellitus, pituitary, obesity and lipids, reproduction, and thyroid. CEU offers a total of 27.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 9 ABIM MOC Points. 

The program includes sessions on:

  • Anti-obesity medicines: The session includes a discission on the benefits of the new class of anti-obesity medications and the challenges in prescribing them, including patient acceptance, acceptance by other providers, insurance issues, and supply chain issues.
  • Female contraception: The session will discuss the latest available evidence on various methods of female contraception, as well as an update on contraception in transgender individuals. Presenters also will help endocrinologists understand safer methods of contraception for patients of child-bearing age. 
  • Diabetic Retinopathy: Prevention and Treatment: The session notes that with the increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes worldwide, estimates suggest the global burden of retinopathy to persist for years to come. Presenters will review the current state and methods of retinopathy screening, both nationally and internationally; discuss standard of care therapies for retinopathy including newer methods of management; and describe possible use of retinopathy screening to predict other diabetes-related complications.

This is just a taste of the CEU offerings. Participants will gain practical knowledge that they can immediately apply to their practice.

EBR and CEU are just two of the many long-standing programs, meetings, and other educational events  that the Society offers to address the knowledge needs of our members. Visit our Meetings & Events page for more details.
