Program Purpose / Objectives
Objectives : This seminar will provide a working knowledge of common endocrinological problems. The course will reinforce physiology, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and management of most major endocrine disorders. The current treatment for these disorders will be developed in sufficient detail to permit independent management or active participation in care with the endocrinologist.

Emphasis will be placed on clinical diagnosis and practical treatment with attention to evidence-based medicine. Upon completion, participants should be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of most endocrinopathies; educate their patients regarding the basic concepts and natural history of these diseases and participate with their patients and consulting endocrinologists in decisions regarding modern disease therapy and prevention.

This seminar will be relevant to family physicians, general internists, endocrinologists and others who manage patients with endocrinological disorders.

Alaska Dawes Glacier Cruise

Ports of Call

Stroll its bustling waterfront (including Pike Place Market), visit the Space Needle, and find a great coffee-shop to enjoy in this coffee-loving city (the home of Starbucks). One of America's tech centers (Amazon and Microsoft are both headquartered here), the city is abuzz with the interesting people attracted to the opportunities to be found there. There is more than enough to see and do here to keep you busy for a day or two. If you have a little extra time, Seattle is a great place to visit.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Ketchikan, Alaska - Immerse yourself in Tlingit Indian culture as you view the world's largest collection of totem poles; kayak the colorful waterfront.

Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier - One of Alaska's lesser-known gems, Endicott Arm Fjord marks the southern edge of Fords Terror Wilderness area. As you drift through its 30 -mile-long stretch, you can't help but be awed by the sorrounding granite cliffs, mountain valleys and dozens of gushing waterfalls. Drifting icebergs, deep blue waters and a spectacular tidewater glacier only add to this natural spectacle's appeal.

Skagway, Alaska - A frontier town perfectly preserved as the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park. Gateway to the Trail of '98, which you may explore by helicopter or vintage railcar.

Victoria, British Columbia - Stroll through the charming downtown of this very British city, with its double-decker buses, turreted castles, fine British woolens, tea and china. Or, just outside the city, visit the lush flora and fauna of Butchart Gardens.
