CLINICAL CONFERENCES

Clinical Conferences are held weekly on topics of interest in diabetes and endocrinology. Speakers include faculty from the Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology and Diabetes (MEND), fellowship trainees, and guest speakers. Clinical cases are often used as a springboard for discussions of diabetes disorders, including patient care issues and reviews of the current research. Once a month, the conference is run by the Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes Consult team and is devoted to reviewing the interesting patients seen on the Consult Service. Drs. Palak Choksi, Meng Tan, and Rob Lash organize the MEND clinical conference series.

The Clinical Conference offers 1.0 hour of CME credit through the University of Michigan Medical School.
