Advances in Diabetes 2012 Webcast Series


Because the majority of people with diabetes and thyroid disease are cared for by their primary care providers, PCPs need a comprehensive review and update on clinical management to provide optimal care. This annual CME course, initiated more than century ago by Elliott P. Joslin, MD, in conjunction with Harvard Medical School, is the longest-running academic course in diabetes in the United States and, likely, the world. The course has evolved with diabetes practice and research as well as the changing continuing education needs of the medical profession, incorporating participant interaction in smaller breakout sessions, interactive workshops, and question-and-answer opportunities for a dynamic learning experience.

This internet enduring material was developed from the following presentation by the faculty on November 1-3, 2012 at the Advances in Diabetes and Thyroid Disease 2012 course in Boston, MA.

These video/slide Web casts are speaker presentations recorded at the course. Click on an activity title below to view.
