ESPE DOM School 2019

The DOM school 2019 took place in Burg Feistritz one hour from Vienna. Twenty four physicians/students from 20 countries around the world gathered there with twelve expert teachers. Intense teaching (from 8 am in the morning) took place. Rare cases as well as more common ones of diabetes mellitus, obesity, lipodystrophies were extensively prepared and discussed. The venue was superb to allow concentration on medicine and science, atmosphere was relaxed and friendly thanks to all participants, local organizers and our hosts.
