We are delighted to announce Our 10 comprehensive pre conference workshops, The workshops will cover all aspects of pituitary related pathologies including pathology, radiology, oncology, paediatrics, endocrinology and surgery. Some of the stations will offer hands on surgical experiences. We have very limited space.
Our main event will be a mixture of pituitary field researches and case-based discussion forum interspersed with current topics in pituitary disease. The multidisciplinary approach combines surgical, endocrinology, and oncology treatment approaches. This year’s programme will contain case discussions of various pituitary disorders. Parallel to this, we run a poster presentation session to encourage trainees to expound on their current research.
This meeting attracts physicians from the endocrinology, neurology, neuro-ophthalmology and oncology units around the UK and Europe. The conference is CPD certified, and attendance will gain CPD points.
There will be prizes for best poster presentation.
We are proud to provide a platform for some of the most well known speakers on pituitary disease.
This year we will have the Stanford's pituitary team joining our speakers.
