2nd Postgraduate course in DSD

The second Postgraduate Course in I-DSD will be held on the 24-26 June 2024 in Stockholm. All healthcare providers and researchers who are involved in the field of DSD will find the course useful for their own professional development. Preference will be given to those who have some clinical and academic experience of DSD, who are based at a centre that participates in I-DSD/I-CAH/I-TS related activities or those who are at an early stage in their career. However, none of these criteria are absolute and the Course Steering Committee will judge all applications on their own merits. The faculty for the Course consists of a group of world-leading experts who shall cover all aspects of the multidisciplinary care provided in DSD.
