Case-Based Workshops

Print

The 15 focused, case-based workshops below will be live streamed during the course. They will each be recorded during the live stream and made available to registrants for 60 days following the course's conclusion so that participants can learn from any or all of them.
 

Workshops T1 - T5
Live Streamed on Thursday, April 7, 4:30 - 6:00pm (ET)

T1: Calcium Cases - Joy Tsai, MD

In this workshop, we will cover both basic bread-and-butter and uncommon “zebra” cases. By working through these cases together, this workshop will help a busy clinician review basic bone and mineral metabolism pathophysiology as well as learn about innovative treatment strategies.  

T2: Obesity Management ~*Includes a Primary Care Focus* - Paul Copeland, MD

In this workshop we will use an interactive format to discuss management of obesity. We will cover obesity comorbidities (especially those that need to be addressed even before accomplishing weight reduction), the roles of lifestyle (especially food choices), medications, and weight loss surgery/procedures. Primary Care providers will find this workshop especially helpful.

T3: Pituitary Carcinoma and Aggressive Pituitary Adenomas: Clinical Updates and Treatment StrategiesAlex Faje, MD

In this workshop we will use a patient case of pituitary carcinoma to highlight current understandings, knowledge limitations, and existing and emerging therapies for aggressive pituitary adenomas and pituitary carcinomas.

T4: Challenging Reproductive Endocrine Cases - Frances J. Hayes, MB BCh BAO, FRCPI

In this workshop, we will use an interactive, case-based format to discuss a number of more challenging male and female reproductive endocrine cases, each of which was selected to make a unique teaching point.

T5: Lessons Learned from Challenging Thyroid Cases - Nikolaos Stathatos, MD

In this workshop, we will use a case-based format to discuss important points of both every day questions that come up in our clinical practice, as well as more complicated cases that will allow for a challenging debate on various aspects of thyroid pathology and pathophysiology as well as management. These topics include cases from mild thyroid dysfunction to medication induced thyroid pathology, to thyroid cancer management.
 

Workshops F1 - F5
Live Streamed on Friday, April 8, 4:30 - 6:00pm (ET)

F1: Calcium and Bone Cases ~*Includes a Primary Care Focus* - Melissa Putman, MD

In this workshop, we will use an interactive, case-based format to discuss interesting bone and calcium cases that you may likely encounter in a primary care setting, covering a range of topics from practical diagnostic and management approaches to diagnostic dilemmas. Primary Care providers will find this workshop especially helpful.

F2: Challenging Diabetes Cases ~*Includes a Primary Care Focus* - Allison Kimball, MD

In this workshop, we will use an interactive, case-based format to discuss diabetes challenges that primary care providers are likely to encounter. We will cover a range of challenging cases with a focus on evaluation and management of diabetes in primary care.

F3: Pituitary Case Discussion: Perspectives from an Endocrinologist and a Neurosurgeon- Pamela Jones, MD, MS, MPH and Laura Dichtel, MD, MHS

In this workshop, we will use a case-based format to illustrate the importance of collaborative care of pituitary patients between an endocrinologist and a neurosurgeon. We will cover a range of pituitary diagnoses in these cases, with a focus on the endocrine workup, review of pituitary imaging, surgical approach and follow-up care of these complex patients.

F4: Topics in Male Reproduction: A Case-Based Approach- Ravikumar Balasubramanian, MBBS, PhD, MRCP (UK)

Ravikumar Balasubramanian will discuss diagnostic challenges and controversies relating to androgen replacement in men and through clinical cases will provide a framework for diagnosis and treatment of male hypogonadism. He will also discuss fertility considerations in men with secondary hypogonadism.

F5: Practical Update on Thyroid Ultrasound- Giuseppe Barbesino, MD

The workshop is aimed at endocrinologists interested in the interpretation of thyroid ultrasound. In this interactive session, Dr. Barbesino will involve the audience in the interpretation of ultrasound images of thyroid disease and thyroid nodules.
 

Workshops S1 - S5
Live Streamed on Saturday, April 9, 4:30 - 6:00pm (ET)

S1: Calcium and Bone Disorder Cases ~*Includes a COVID-19 Focus*- Marc Wein, MD, PhD

In this case-based workshop, participants can update their approach to and understanding of bone and mineral disorders: metabolism, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment. We provide updates and best practices for both common and uncommon topics, emphasizing exciting, new advances in these disease areas.

S2: Hypoglycemia- Deborah J. Wexler, MD

In this workshop, we will review the underlying pathophysiology of hypoglycemia, a complicated case of hypoglycemia in diabetes, and mini-cases illustrating examples of hypoglycemia in the absence of diabetes.

S3: Pediatric Endocrinology That an Adult Endocrinologist Should Know- Takara Stanley, MD

In this workshop, we will use a case-based format to discuss pediatric endocrine topics that adult endocrinologists often encounter while caring for adults. With particular attention to differences between pediatric and adult pathophysiology and management, we will cover endocrine conditions that are diagnosed in childhood and continue into adulthood, including congenital adrenal hyperplasia, type 2 diabetes, growth hormone deficiency, and delayed puberty/hypogonadism. We will also discuss best practices for transitions of care.

S4: Case-Based Approach to Reproductive Endocrinology- Margaret Lippincott, MD

In this workshop, we will use an interactive, case-based format to discuss reproductive endocrinology pathophysiology. We will cover a range of reproductive endocrinology disorders affecting women and/or men, emphasizing new, clinically relevant information for screening, diagnosis and treatment of these disorders.

S5: Illustrative Cases of Thyroid Dysfunction ~*Includes a Primary Care Focus*- Nikolaos Stathatos, MD

In this workshop, we will use a case-based format to discuss important points of both every day questions that come up in our clinical practice, as well as more complicated cases that will allow for a challenging debate on various aspects of thyroid pathology and pathophysiology as well as management. These topics include cases from mild thyroid dysfunction to medication induced thyroid pathology, to thyroid cancer management. Primary Care providers will find this workshop especially helpful.
