The Spring Retreat targets Pediatric Endocrine Society (PES) members in their first or second year of Pediatric Endocrinology fellowship training. The Retreat is held annually in association with the PES Annual Meeting. The 2023 Retreat will take place May 8-10, 2023 in San Diego, CA, following the Annual Meeting. The goals of the Spring Retreat are to develop and practice critical thinking skills in clinical Pediatric Endocrinology, learn about different career trajectories within the field, and network with other fellows and faculty. Fellows will prepare and present cases to an audience of peers and faculty.

The two-day Retreat has approximately 12 hours of programming. Programming includes the interactive case discussions prepared and presented by fellows with mentorship from assigned faculty; social events for networking and informal discussion; and didactic lectures by nationally known experts. Topics may include areas of special interest and controversy within Pediatric Endocrinology. PES provides room and board at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina for participants during the Retreat.
