The Surgical Endocrine Symposium series is organized by the Department of Surgery at Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), in collaboration with the Qatar Surgical Society, with the aim of delivering focused training to physicians and nurses in this specialized field of surgery.
The planning committee has developed an exciting program that includes presentations, panel discussions based on clinical case scenarios and recent research and clinical advances.
Presenters include specialists from multiple medical disciplines who are involved in the care of patients with pancreatic pathology, including endocrinologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, anesthetists and medical oncologists.
Part of the program will include a panel of experts who will discuss select pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor patient cases that address recurring questions and highlight common management issues regarding this disease.
We invite physicians, especially surgeons, and nurses and allied health professionals, particularly those working in surgery or who are involved in related research, to attend this very targeted educational event.
This symposium is part of a series of endocrine symposia, and three previous Surgical Endocrine Symposia included: “Surgical Endocrine Symposium: Adrenal Gland” (October 6, 2017), “Surgical Endocrine Symposium: Parathyroid Gland” (March 2, 2018), and the most recent event “Surgical Endocrine Symposium: Thyroid Gland” (September 21, 2018) which were all very successful and well attended.
These are important educational activities and we look forward to welcoming all those who have a particular interest in this topic to register for this event.
