ISPAD Tutors - Call for Applications!

To create a better world for children, adolescents and young adults with diabetes is the mission of ISPAD. To fulfill this mission, education at an international scale is needed.

ISPAD is currently looking for 2-4 tutors to teach young African colleagues in diabetes and endocrinology at two endocrinology diabetes fellow schools (PETC(W)A) in Africa that we help teach at in collaboration with ESPE. Spending two weeks in Lagos or Nairobi is an unforgettable experience, for both faculty and fellows.
We are currently looking for tutors for August/September 2016, and for February 2017. If you are interested, please click here.

Shorter postgraduate courses are organized by ISPAD with different partners in many parts of the world. Some courses are specifically for physicians or healthcare professionals, in other courses the team approach may be central. If you are you interested in participating, let us know and fill out the tutor form here!

E-Learning Portal

New educational tools include the web based e-learning programs. These allow a wider access to information and a continuous auto evaluation.

ISPAD has been invited by ESPE to develop the Diabetes Module in the e-learning portal created by the team of Professor Sten Drop in Rotterdam. This Diabetes Module will be based on our Clinical Practice Consensus Guidelines. The first chapter will be online shortly and ISPAD Members will be able to access the e-learning portal soon. More information will follow.

Eli Lilly has kindly provided a restricted educational grant for this project.
