Over the last few months , the focus has been shifting from face-to-face teaching to a more virtual approach with the ability to attend meetings from the comfort of not having to search for a parking spot (among other things). We would like to know the thoughts of our members on how this resonates among our group and whether there are any particular preferences. Please provide your responses. This may influence the decision on upcoming teaching sessions depending on the overall outlook. The poll will end on 15th of November and based on the answers , we can push for advice to the TPD and trainee representatives in order to facilitate future sessions for the North-west sector.
This is an excellent opportunity to obtain a fellowship to visit an endocrinology centre or research institution to learn new techniques or experience different clinical or research settings. Funding of up to £8000 is available and the deadline for submitting a proposal is 1 August 2020. Application should be made using the form on the Royal College of Physicians website and can be accessed from this link.
The Society for Endocrinology’s online clinical skill webinar series will commence on 15th July 2020 and will deliver a series of accesible lectures until 7th October 2020. Topics covered include Cushing’s syndrome, thyroid eye disease, amiodarone induced thyroid disease, infertility, adrenocortical tumours, the geenetics of pituitary tumours, the management of transgender patients and metabolic bone disease.

The endocrinology team at the Christie Hospital are hosting an endocrine clinical cases discussion every 2 weeks (started 24th June 2020 and continuing on a 2-weekly basis) using Zoom. This is a great opportunity for trainees and other colleagues to present cases and allows for a nice endocrine virtual catch-up in these difficult times!
We are encouraging endocrine case presentations from all hospitals in the region. They do not have to be rare and indeed the cases in which there are valuable lessons are the ones that have been enjoyed most. Feedback from previous meetings has been positive especially because there have been some very interesting and enjoyable discussions.
The case meeting starts at 15:30 and ends at 17:00 – please join using this link.
