 The YDEF Lipids for Medics course is now in its fourth year. This year we are running the meeting in conjunction with the Royal Society of Medicine in London. This course will cover essential aspects of the investigation and management of lipid disorders, and is geared towards trainees in diabetes / endocrinology, cardiology, clinical pharmacology, etc, who will encounter patients with dyslipidaemia but for whom this area of medicine often receives little formal training. It is on Monday 15 June 2015 at the Royal Society of Medicine.

More details are available at the RSM website

We have assembled a faculty of highly regarded lipidologists from across the UK, and building on the successful formula of last few years there will again be interactive sessions and lectures on core topics and current controversies. For those who attended previously, much of the material covered will be new and you will again be welcome this year.

The course will be held at the Royal Society of Medicine on Monday 15 June. Registration now open!
