First Ever Endocrine Review Course on September 5-6, 2015 at Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi

It gives us a great pleasure to announce that the Pakistan Endocrine Society has organized a very successful First Ever Endocrine Review Course for the Endocrine Fellows from all over Pakistan. It was a great opportunity for the fellows to learn from their seniors and get prepared for their future Exams. This was just not about exams it was much much more than that it was an opportunity for the Fellows to have a look on those critical cases which their senior faces during their practice and learn to deal with them with care and bring them back towards the healthy life.

The program begins with the Tilawat-e-Quran-e-Pak by Dr. Muhammad Qamar Masood and then the president of the Pakistan Endocrine Society Dr. Saeed Mahar welcomes everyone and introduced the first ever Endocrinologist of Pakistan Dr. Naeem-ul-Haq who inaugurated the program formally.
