YDEF Lipids for Medics.

Written by Ali Chakera on Friday, 13 July 2012 13:43.


 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.
