A new initiative from the European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS), this two-day training course is particularly designed for clinicians in training with a particular interest in the field of mineral metabolism and metabolic bone diseases, including osteoporosis.
The programme will provide participants with the fundamental and advanced knowledge in clinical skills for the evaluation and management of patients with a metabolic bone disease. Delegates will also gain a comprehensive understanding of diagnostic tools and treatment options.
The training course will combine state-of-the-art lectures with discussion of cases in small groups. It will offer plenty of opportunities for networking and share ideas.
The 2022 training course will develop over two-full days training and will:
- Inform about metabolic bone diseases and disorders of mineral homeostasis
- Discuss cases to illustrate key points in diagnosis and treatment
- Identify clinical guidelines that should be followed
- Offer advice about management of individual cases
This course is mainly aimed at clinicians in training and clinical PhD students, but it is also of interest to specialists willing to update their knowledge, allied health professionals, and industry delegates.
The Organisers will seek CME Accreditation for this event.
