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.
