AACE/ACE Advanced Neck Ultrasound Training Course, September 9-10, 2017, Dallas, TX
Program Description
Whereas ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid and parathyroid disorders encompasses new knowledge and technology that was not available in most formal training programs for endocrinologists, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has undertaken responsibility of training and certifying endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, otolaryngologists / head and neck surgeons, pathologists and radiologists in these new procedures. Many candidates for ECNU certification need further instruction in performance of comprehensive ultrasound examination, preparation of written reports, biopsy technique and slide preparation. The target audience for this course is clinical endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, ENT / head and neck surgeons, pathologists and radiologists and their physician extenders.
