Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormone disorder affecting an estimated 100 million women of childbearing age worldwide. Recent years have shown substantial advances in our understanding of the complex genetic, biochemical, metabolic, cardiovascular, and reproductive issues associated with PCOS. However, the lack of well-defined diagnostic criteria makes identification of this common disease confusing to many clinicians.
Furthermore, the most distressing aspect of PCOS for any given patient may change over time, from hirsutism as a teenager to infertility as a young adult–potentially requiring several different providers along the way. It is important, therefore, that those caring for these patients understand not only the management issues pertinent to their specialty, but also appreciate the other potential health risks in these women.
This course integrates the recommendations from the International evidence-based guideline on the assessment and management of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) 2018, using case studies, discussion forums and video expert presentations to build participant’s knowledge and skills in diagnosis and management of PCOS.
This 3-day, clinically oriented, interactive, hands-on training course offers advanced lectures complemented hands-on activities and discussion with experts.
The course is $300. The fee includes course admission fee, all the necessary material for the course, lunches, coffee-breaks, social dinner and certificate of attendance.
