Endocrinology and Diabetology Together in Romania - ESE Postgraduate Training Course

Acta Endo (Buc) 2015, 11 (1): 73-76
doi: 10.4183/aeb.2015.73

Late November this year, Cluj-Napoca, the main academic center in Transylvania, hosted the 15th ESE Postgraduate Training Course in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism. Officially opened in Cluj on Friday, November 28 by ESE representatives, the ESE postgraduate course represents a “must attend event” for each endocrinologist, particularly the young, as these courses tremendously contribute to the development of our specialty by setting high standards and creating best practices, as pointed out by Prof. Carmen Georgescu, Local Organizing Committee Chair and Course Director. A most distinguished and renowned teaching faculty from around Europe was the key element towards achieving successful learning outcomes. The aim of a training course being to assure an up-to-date to known clinical problems and mostly to controversial issues of those, this meeting had all the features needed to provide for this aim. The layout of the course permitted a gentle passage from general management to individual cases, blending consensus opinions to individual case-finding strategy and treatment. To conclude, the 15th ESE Postgraduate Course was very fruitful and perfectly organized.

Keywords: endocrinology, diabetes, metabolism, postgraduate training.
