Society for Endocrinology - a world-leading authority on hormones


Clinical Update

Providing essential training for trainees and new consultants in endocrinology and diabetes since 2007, Clinical Update is a three-year programme covering the national curriculum in endocrinology and diabetes

Over a three-year period, the programme covers the national curriculum in endocrinology and diabetes issued by the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board and is indispensable for those preparing to sit the Federation of Royal Colleges of Physicians’ Specialty Certificate Examination in endocrinology and diabetes. It is also an ideal opportunity for more established clinicians to hear the latest updates in the specialty.

Clinical Update is a three-day residential course comprises lectures and interactive workshops. The small group workshops (50 delegates maximum) are targeted to specific topics on the curriculum. They begin with a short introductory presentation by a leader in the field, followed by discussions centred around routine cases presented by delegates. The majority of the time is spent on discussing best clinical practice with these day-to-day scenarios.


“The workshops were clinical, practical and relevant – an excellent chance to hear from approachable experts and ask them questions.”Clinical Update delegate
