The YDEF -OCDEM Finishing School for SpRs (Our Advanced Diabetes Course, previously known as the YDF OCDEM State of the Art Course) will be held on Thursday/Friday 14th/15th November at Eynsham Hall near Oxford.  The course will be chaired by professors Rury Holman and Richard Holt and is designed for those coming towards the end of their SpR training and soon to embark on consultant careers. 

This event is designed for trainees coming to the end of their training and is designed to cover cutting edge and highly specialist areas of clinical care and also to prepare for consultant interviews and consultant posts. As always, we have attracted a fantastic faculty of eminent speakers and the again the course will be chaired by Professors Rury Holman and Richard Holt.

By the end of the course delegates will have picked up tips on how to approach consultant post applications, how to perform at interview and how to negotiate a contact and how to survive as a new consultant!  Eynsham Hall is set in glorious Oxfordshire countryside and is a fitting venue for this eminent event.

The YDEF is part of Diabetes UK and exists only because of the accounting, legal and other support it receives from Diabetes UK. YDF courses and membership has always been available only for Diabetes UK professional members, although this has not been enforced. As YDF courses represent much greater value than the £35/yr that it costs to be a professional member of Diabetes UK, we hope it is reasonable that we insist on your membership number to allocate places at YDF courses.  

Deposit cheques. Once Roselle has confirmed your registration. Please send a £150 cheque favouring 'Diabetes UK" to Taryn Ayres (address below). This cheque will be refunded when you hand in your course feedback.
