Monogenic Diabetes Symposium

Monogenic Diabetes Training Course

“Monogenic Diabetes - right diagnosis, right treatment”     

Wednesday 31st January – Thursday 1st February 2018

The Mercure Exeter Rougemont Hotel, Exeter, England

This two day course on Monogenic Diabetes is aimed at consultants, SpRs and experienced DSNs, and is designed to help busy clinicians recognise and treat patients with MODY and other forms of monogenic diabetes. It will focus on the current practices and new developments in the management of monogenic diabetes. 

The programme will include plenary lectures on major topics delivered by Prof. Andrew Hattersley and his team of international experts. Separate small group case-based discussions will focus on key themes.  There will be ample opportunity for interaction, networking and multi-disciplinary team development.

Highlights include:
