About Ydef

Young Diabetologists & Endocrinologists’ Forum is the trainee and young consultants’ wing of Diabetes UK and is supported by the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists and Society for Endocrinology. We serve three core functions for our members – education, advocacy and support.

Our mission is to enable high quality care for people with diabetes and endocrine conditions by delivering excellence in specialist education and providing an effective voice for our members. We organise a wide variety of national training events each year, the details of which are enclosed in this brochure. These courses are unique and held in high regard; they continue to attract some of the most influential figures in UK Diabetes. Recent speakers have included Professor Jonathan Valabhji, NHS England National Clinical Director for Obesity & Diabetes and Sir David Nicholson, Chief Executive of NHS England. The YDEF also represent the interests of specialist trainees at a number of national organisations including specialist training bodies.

Is YDEF free to join?

Yes, completely free as are many of the courses that we organise. You do need to be a member of Diabetes UK to join though.

Can I attend these meetings with or on behalf of a YDEF representative?

Yes absolutely, we are always looking for more people to get involved! Please get in touch.

How is YDEF funded?

Being part of the YDEF committee is voluntary and not paid. YDEF gets free administrative support from Diabetes UK which we are very grateful for! Pharmaceutical companies financially support our courses and conferences but do not have any involvement in setting the agendas of these meetings – we are also very grateful for their support as the courses would not be possible without them.
