Up to 120 medical specialists will begin 2014 discussing the most up-to-date thinking surrounding endocrinology and diabetes at a two-day conference hosted by Abu Dhabi’s Imperial College London Diabetes Centre (ICLDC).

The second Clinical Update from the European Society of Endocrinology (ESE), in collaboration with ICLDC, takes place over January 10-11. The programme features more than 15 international expert sessions, including the most recent take on diabetes guidelines from Her Excellency Professor Maha Barakat, Director General of Health Authority Abu Dhabi.

According to Karim Meeran, Professor of Endocrinology, Imperial College London Faculty of Medicine and Chairman of ICLDC’s Medical Board, the programme will deliver a rigorous update on current clinical practice, research and thinking in the hormonal field, with a focus on their role in the prevalence of diabetes and related complications.

“ECU 2014 has a great appeal and value for endocrinologists, as well as medical practitioners who have a specific interest in diabetes management,” he said. Professor Karim went on to say that delegates can expect to hear intensive reviews on the cutting-edge of clinical endocrinology.

Meanwhile, Professor Philippe Bouchard, the ESE President and author of numerous published works on endocrinology, confirmed that the comprehensive programme is structured over 20 sessions - a combination of lectures and interactive workshops, including the latest thinking on hyperparathyroidism, congenital adrenal hyperplasia and state-of-the-art minimally invasive adrenal surgery.
