Program Purpose / Objectives

Objectives : This seminar will provide a working knowledge of common endocrinological problems. The course will reinforce physiology, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and management of most major endocrine disorders. The current treatment for these disorders will be developed in sufficient detail to permit independent management or active participation in care with the endocrinologist. Emphasis will be placed on clinical diagnosis and practical treatment with attention to evidence-based medicine. Upon completion, participants should be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of most endocrinopathies; educate their patients regarding the basic concepts and natural history of these diseases and participate with their patients and consulting endocrinologists in decisions regarding modern disease therapy and prevention. This seminar will be relevant to family physicians, general internists, endocrinologists and others who manage patients with endocrinological disorders.

Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
