About this Program

This program is meant to stimulate self-study as an adjunct to textbooks. In addition, it will be useful for classical demonstrations or small-scale group discussions.

The program contains various chapters guiding you interactively through the regulation and genetics of growth and puberty. Moreover, it contains 22 clinical cases in which you are invited to solve diagnostic and therapeutic problems related to congenital or acquired disorders of growth and puberty.

The starting point in the core program of the case demonstrations is the complaint and/or request for help of the patient. Following analysis of the complaint and gathering of relevant information, a proposal of the most likely diagnosis and treatment is made. You are encouraged to review etiological factors (pathogenesis, pathophysiology), the natural course of the disease, and new developments. The core program enables you to gain a basic knowledge of the progression of normal growth and puberty, to interpret growth curves, to make a distinction between primary and secondary growth disorders, and to recognize common disorders of growth and puberty (such as Turner syndrome, constitutional short stature, and precocious/delayed puberty).

The advanced modules focus on in-depth background information and provide you with assignments to search the literature (such as Pubmed) for details or updated information relating to the etiology and patho-physiology of disorders described in the core modules.

They give descriptions of disorders typically belonging to the pediatric realm (in view of rarity or required expertise), as well as detailed information relating to treatment and background information relating to new developments.
