Shedding light on molecules and hormones – Sydney
The field of endocrinology has continuously expanded in the past 50 years through increased knowledge about aetiology, diagnosis and therapy. Increasing patient numbers with common conditions as type 2 diabetes; men’s health related illnesses; osteoporosis; thyroid disorders and hypercalcaemia are seen in general practices on a daily basis. Additionally obesity has overtaken smoking as the biggest preventable health threat in Australia.
Last year’s MJA series addressed the main four endocrine areas: diabetes, osteoporosis, thyroid disease and male hypogonadism and stated that: “It is likely these diseases involve half the population over 50 years of age.” 1.
The MJA Professional Development team is holding an active learning day in Sydney and Melbourne this June, with expert speakers addressing the ‘Integration of physiology, biochemistry, and clinical medicine’ covering the following:
