Webinar Series on New Developments in Endocrinology

Session 5 : Challenging Endocrine Cases: Can Experts agree to disagree?


WEBINAR CONTENT

Join a bevy of endocrine aficionados for a rousing discussion of endocrine cases. We will bravely go where others fear to tread - whether it be a 70 kg Addisonian with gastrointestinal signs on a budget, a hyperlipidemic, Cushinoid diabetic schnauzer with acute pancreatitis, or the acromegalic diabetic cat on 34 units of insulin BID. If time allows, we also will field questions regarding prior sessions from attendees.

 

Webinar Series Registration : Once you have registered and upon payment, you will receive the link to access the on-demand recording for a period of 8 weeks. The registration fee includes extensive electronic course notes.  If you wish to receive a Certificate of Attendance after having viewed the webinar, please get in touch with us and we will send it to you electronically.  After having taken and passed a multiple-choice question quiz, an additional certificate can be provided which confirms that the quiz was successfully completed. This certificate may then be used to request accreditation points from your local governing body / Veterinary Medical Association.
