Programme

 

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the  Organizing Committee, together with Professor Marek Ruchała (Chair of Polish Society of Endocrinology) and Professor Bogdan Marek (Chair of Silesian Society of Endocrinology), we are pleased to invite you to participate in the Teaching Course on Pituitary Diseases, which will take place in Krakow, December 4-5, 2020.
The goal of the course is to focus on all aspects of diagnostics and treatment of pituitary diseases. The course will be led by a multidisciplinary team of highly qualified specialists, involving endocrinologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, pathologists, radiation therapists, and molecular biologists.
Experts in the field of pediatric medicine will present specific aspects of pituitary tumors in children and young adults, as well as particular aspects of treatment during adolescence. A group of distinguished specialists - invited speakers and lecturers - will moderate broad discussions aimed to highlight and clarify issues related to the above mentioned cases. A major purpose of the course is to focus on clinical and practical aspects with special regard to case presentations.
The course meeting should serve also as a unique opportunity to build interactions, share experience and create new scientific and professional relations.
 
We are looking forward to seeing you, this year online!
