 First-Ever Endocrine Review Course at Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi

It gives us a great pleasure to announce that the Pakistan Endocrine Society has organized a very successful First Ever Endocrine Review Course for the Endocrine Fellows from all over Pakistan. It was a great opportunity for the fellows to learn from their seniors and get prepared for their future Exams. This was just not about exams it was much much more than that it was an opportunity for the Fellows to have a look at those critical cases which their senior faces during their practice and learn to deal with them with care and bring them back towards the healthy life.
