Here are some comments from people that attended the ACVIM Endocrinology course in Las Vegas:
- "This Endocrinology seminar was exactly what I was hoping for. I was able to hear the leaders in this field discuss pathophysiology, clinical presentation diagnostic tests, and treatment options for the type of cases I see every week. I especially enjoyed the panel sessions because the speakers were not afraid to challenge each other and the current thought on these diseases. I feel like I am leaving here with confidence in the methods that I already use and a few new ideas to challenge me."
- "The best CE I have attended in the last ten years! This was an outstanding CE course (Endocrinology) – easily the most informative, with valuable information to take away. Discussions at the level appropriate for Diplomates. The speakers stimulated me to critically analyze some of the methods I use, and there is so much I want to try when I get back. Thank you for putting together such a great CE course!"
- "As an ACVIM Candidate in Small Animal Internal Medicine, this information was extremely useful and immediately applicable (Endocrinology). Good balance of current literature, basic science and clinical application. I particularly enjoyed the panel 'arguments' and discussions. It was very useful to hear the difference in opinion to get a good idea of where there is consensus and where there was significant variability."
