This year’s NZSE clinical case conference (Thursday 22nd – Friday 23rd November) is a little different. We’ve decided to concentrate on clinical endocrinology and training, by using a format of clinical case presentations. We will be providing a forum for Endocrine Trainees and SMOs to present challenging, interesting and informative cases which will stimulate lively discussion and interactive learning. Join us to be entertained and educated. The venue is the Novotel, Cathedral Square, Christchurch. In addition to the clinical case presentations, we are working to confirm our plenary visiting speaker, Dr Bryan McIver (Deputy Physician in Chief of the Moffitt Medical Group, Florida). Dr McIver is a recognised expert and speaker in the evaluation and management of patients with thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer, with a particular focus on advanced and aggressive forms of thyroid cancer. Registration, case summary submission and programme details are now available. The NZSSD Conference follows, starting on the evening of Friday 23rd November, but at a different Novotel (at the Airport).
