Upcoming Events

New YDEF, ABCD and Lilly Diabetes Masterclasses

YDEF and ABCD have established a new partnership with Lilly to provide virtual education to trainees in Diabetes and Endocrinology.

The partnership will provide 6 Diabetes Masterclasses in 2021, with targeted topics to meet the needs of trainees and enable them to continue to maintain CPD during this difficult time.

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.
