Student Endocrinology Exposure Development (SEED) program – NEW
SEED is a novel interactive session series being hosted by the Pediatric Endocrine Society that aims to enhance clinical learning for medical students and increase their exposure to pediatric endocrinology.
The inaugural session of the program was held virtually via Zoom on August 14 from 4-5 PM EDT. Dr. Marissa Kilberg from the student and resident subcommittee of the PES Education council discussed HYPERTHYROIDISM: WORK-UP, DIAGNOSIS AND CLINICAL PEARLS.
The next offering for SEED is:
‘My Baby Has A Blood Sugar Problem’
This session will be held virtually via Zoom on November 13 from 4-5 PM EDT. There will be a Q/A session during which members of the student and resident subcommittee will address questions from students related to research opportunities, residency and fellowship applications (what to look for in programs, tips for application, etc.), and advocacy followed by an interactive case discussion to achieve the following educational objectives.
By the end of the activity, attendees will be able to:
- Identify the signs, symptoms, diagnostic criteria, and classification of diabetes in the pediatric population.
- Recognize how mutations in one of several genes involved in the normal development and function of pancreatic beta cells can lead to the development of neonatal diabetes or congenital hyperinsulinism
- Interpret key elements of a history and laboratory workup and understand how this can direct further evaluation and therapy in pediatric disorders of insulin production.
