Places will also be allocated for a few non-clinical scientists at YDF Day 2010 .

Looking forward to 2010

2009 was another successful year for the YDF that saw over 100 trainees attending YDF Day in Glasgow and 1.5 million hits to youngdiabetologists.org.

2010 heralds YDF Scotland , the first of a series of  regional YDF events, a YDF National Insulin pump course and a comprehensive survey of all D&E trainees to quantify concerns like lack of consultant posts and specialist training experience.

If there is anything else the YDF can help with, please do get in touch via our website.

Have a great 2010!

Best Wishes,

Marc Atkin (YDF Chair) and Jyothis George (YDF Web Editor)
