ESA Clinical Weekend 2018
The 2018 Endocrine Society Clinical Weekend returns early to the city of Adelaide, South Australia, on August 17-19. We invite delegates to join us in the heart of the cultural boulevard of the city to combine academic learning and experience with the vibrant culture and food of one of the World’s top 10 most liveable cities.
Our Endocrine Registrars will again be honoured with a series of case presentations this year with the theme:
“Lessons learned from unusual presentations of everyday Endocrine problems”
Start the weekend by joining us at the historic Adelaide Oval for the Welcome Function: 'Wear Your Team Colours!' where we will be joined by the iconic Maggie Beer.
Maggie Beer will be delivering a presentation on 'the pleasure of a good food life for all, regardless of age and health restrictions'. Maggie Beer is not just an Australian food icon, she's an essential ingredient in any discussion about food and flavour
The Organising Committee encourages all delegates to wear their favourite sporting colours to our welcome function on Friday night at the iconic Adelaide Oval, before joining us for a weekend of Plenary presentations by internationally recognised speakers.
The clinical meeting will be held in the Riverside rooms of the Convention centre overlooking the River Torrens precinct. We have chosen one unifying theme for the Registrar presentations in 2018 - reminding us that the diagnosis and management of even the more common Endocrine disorders can be a humbling experience.
Following the Saturday morning academic sessions, come and join us for 'Fire Hazard Games: Raiders of the Lost Archive' - for several hours of cryptic clue unravelling and puzzle solving in the beautiful State Library of South Australia. We would like you to form a team of 2 to 4 with your colleagues to solve the puzzles and be the fastest to answer our historic Endocrine Quiz while exploring the deep recesses and chambers of theStateLibrary. Advanced trainees vs Consultants, Hospital vs Hospital, State vs State – this challenge is bound to bring out the competitive streak in even themost friendly of competitor. On Saturday night’s conference dinner at the National Wine Centre we will present the winners of theafternoon’s Hazard Games and award the presenting registrars with a memento to mark their achievement. South Australia’s best wine growing regions including the Barossa and Clare Valleys, the Adelaide Hills regions and McLaren Vale will be showcased to delegates during the dinner, accompanied by gourmet food and an opportunity to speak to the winemaker.
To finish the weekend, on Sunday afternoon a workshop focussing on women in leadership and research roles will be presented by Professor Helena Teede –a first for the ESA Clinical Weekend.
We look forward to you joining us in August!
