Young Diabetologists Forum Finishing School 'well received'


The third YDF OCDEM Finishing School for Specialist Registrars was held at Eynsham Hall on 10th and 11th February 2011. Thirty six final year SpR's - from as far afield as Scotland, Manchester and Yorkshire - met for a meeting that covered complex clinical issues in the management of people with diabetes and provided preparation for securing and starting a consultant post.

The meeting was extremely well received and feedback was very positive. Highlights of the meeting included discussions around designing guidelines, how to negotiate consultant job contracts and how to provide good advice to elite athletes with type 2 diabetes. The meeting was co-sponsored by Takeda and we are grateful for their support.

The YDF look forward to running the meeting again next year.
