Winter School 2022 Online - Applications now closed

ESPE is happy to announce that the next Winter School will be delivered online from 26 February - 1st March 2022. Each day there will be lectures given by an experienced teaching faculty all of whom are ESPE members. The aim is to cover all main topics in paediatric endocrinology. Following these lectures there will be the opportunity for a discussion of any points needing further clarification. Each student will have the opportunity to present a clinical case which has been selected too illustrate the variety of the disease spectrum and the principles of recognition, investigation and management of different paediatric endocrine conditions. There will also be small group sessions with a faculty member “teachers cases” - to discuss different management approaches in more detail. If you wish to be considered for the school then please apply online now using the below linked online application form. All eligibility information is included on the application form page.
