The Early Career Symposium will to further your skillset and help you advance your career.
This year's title is: 'Engaging with the public - Why stepping out of the ivory tower widens more than just your world'
Session talks include:
- How your Society can help you engage the public – Maralyn Druce (Chair of Public Engagement Committee)
- Making the best of what you’re given and public engagement grants – Speaker TBC
- How to reach out across social media – Helen Simpson
- Meaningful engagement with patients: the importance of recognising common humanity in patients is key to improving relationships’ – Speaker TBC

The focus of this symposia is how to engage with the public around topics in endocrinology. You'll learn why you should do it, how best to do it and how the Society can support this.
The Society's Public Engagement Grant is available to support the organisation and delivery of outreach activities, aimed at school children and/or the general public.
Along with the varied programme, the conference will give you ample opportunity to network with other early career attendees and senior clinicians, nurses and scientists. Monday, the networking day for Early Career attendees, includes two fun and engaging sessions:
The Society has multiple Grants and Awards aimed at enriching and rewarding exceptional work of Early Career endocrinologists. In doing so we ensure that leading voices in our community get the recognition they deserve at such an early point in their careers.
The Society's Travel Grant enables those with limits to budgets to attend endocrinology meetings that they have submitted an abstract to.
This is a important grant in supporting you in being able to present your research while raising your profile in our connected community.
For Early Career members, you can apply for up to £600 towards the costs of registration, travelling and accommodation.
