Society for Endocrinology - a world-leading authority on hormones



The Society for Endocrinology’s Clinical Update training programme provides essential learning for trainees and recently appointed consultants in endocrinology and diabetes.

As you may be aware, Endocrine Academy 2020, which was due to take place in December, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been incredibly fortunate that the venue have been able to accommodate a new date for us. We are delighted to invite you to Endocrine Academy 2021 which will be held in Birmingham from 26 - 28 April 2021. The programme for Clinical Update 2021 will follow the programme which was advertised for 2020 in the 3-year rolling programme.

Clinical Update provides an update on current clinical practice and offers delegates an unparalleled opportunity to network with fellow trainees and established endocrinologists.

Over a three year period, the programme of the Society for Endocrinology Clinical Update Series covers all eight strands of the revised specialty curricula by the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board (JRCPTB). This provides excellent preparation for the Specialty Certificate Examination (SCE) in Endocrinology and Diabetes.

The programme is organised in recurrent three-year cycles, ensuring that trainees and newly qualified consultants can start their attendance in any given year and are able to cover all topics within three years. The training programme is structured through lectures and interactive small group workshops that focus on discussing best clinical practice based on day-to-day case scenarios. This structure creates an excellent atmosphere that provides an effective forum for networking with peers and established endocrinologists.

Over twenty faculty members and two hundred participants will attend the meeting, providing lots of opportunities for networking both in and outside the sessions. 

We hope you enjoy the programme and will find it invaluable in fulfilling your training requirements and look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham in April 2021.

Programme Chair 2019 to 2021
