EFF and ASBMR Fellows Forum on Metabolic Bone Diseases
New - 14th Fellows Forum Faculty Lectues Posted Below
Thank you to the Fellows and Faculty who particiated in this year's Forum September 8-9, 2020!
Jennifer Fuh, University of New Mexico - "this was a great varied program regarding bone health. the first day's plenary sessions were felt a bit dense, but set a strong foundation for the rest of the sessions."
Medha Joshi, Eastern Virginia Medical School - "Speakers were all awesome, and so were the topics. Maybe a session on challenging outpatient cases will be good addition for future."
Ami Amin, Albany Medical Center - "It was such a wonderful program. I felt like I learned so much about bone health that I would never have learned if I didn’t attend this conference. Thank you for hosting this conference virtually."
The Endocrine Fellows Foundation (EFF) and the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR), are pleased to offer fellows training in osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases a unique opportunity to participate in a Fellows Forum on Metabolic Bone Diseases held immediately prior to the ASBMR Annual Meeting in mid-September.
The program format is a combination of plenary lectures and breakout sessions given by distinguished leaders in the field. This year's Faculty includes: Co-Chairs Dr. John Bilezikian and Dr. Teresita Bellido. Dr. Neil Binkley, Dr. Mary Bouxsein, Dr. Bart Clarke, Dr. Michael McClung, Dr. Paul Miller, Dr. Kristy Nicks, Dr. Clifford Rosen, Dr. Ego Seeman, Dr. Deborah Sellmeyer, and Dr. Michael Whyte. The topics selected for presentation and discussion are timely and among the most important in our field. There will be an equal balance of topics from both clinical and basic aspects of metabolic bone diseases.
The plenary lectures set the stage for the breakout sessions that are organized in such a way that clinical, translational, and basic aspects of the field are well represented. The breakout sessions are an opportunity for you to meet the experts and to learn more about areas in which you might already be interested or would like to become better informed.
Fellows are also invited to present their work in a poster presentation where the receive faculty and peer feedback. We view the poster session as one of the highlights of the day and look forward to hearing about fellows’ exciting research in this setting.
Directors of Postdoctoral Subspecialty Training Programs for MDs, Pre- or Postdoctoral PhD Fellowship Training Programs are invited to select individuals from their programs who meet the criteria and whose education, in their opinion, would be enhanced by participating in this Forum.
The focus of trainees in the three below categories must be in metabolic bone diseases but can be from any of the subspecialties (i.e., endocrinology, rheumatologic, basic bone biology, orthopedic research, geriatrics, etc.).
MD in an accredited, relevant specialty training program
(1st, 2nd, or 3rd year)
PhD in a post-doctoral program (for not more than 3 years)
