This educational program focuses on the recognition, diagnosis, and management of patients with thyroid eye disease, the majority of whom remain undiagnosed and unaware of treatment options. The program combines flexible, self-directed learning, live group discussions, and collaborative group case challenges for an informative and memorable learning experience. This personalized mentorship model prioritizes peer-to-peer and learner-to-TED expert interactions so that you can apply didactic information to real-world clinical practice with confidence. Designed to encourage cross-disciplinary learning, take this opportunity to strengthen your referral networks and see how the other half practices! Improve your understanding of TED and enhance your patient outcomes with this comprehensive educational initiative.
In the first course of the series, we’ll use a ‘test-and-teach’ approach to establish your base knowledge of thyroid eye disease (TED).
