The ESE Recommended Curriculum of Specialisation in Clinical Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism aims to address concerns raised by the ESE Council of Affiliated Societies (ECAS) regarding the standardisation of education within the field of clinical endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism across Europe.
ESE, in an effort to provide a more consistent pan-European understanding of clinical endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism, has defined the key areas in which a clinical endocrinologist should be expected to have sufficient knowledge and understanding.
The curriculum describes the knowledge requirements for clinicians practicing in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism and is provided as a resource for students to assess their training progress, for education providers in the development of content and, ultimately, for working towards a standard for endocrine education across Europe.
This extensive curriculum has been collated into an accessible, user friendly ESE Online Curriculum. The online curriculum allows individuals to access a wealth of educational resources ESE offers for each curriculum topic.
For each curriculum topic resources range from content on ESE On Demand, pre-recorded lectures taken from ESE Postgraduate Courses, links to relevant journal entries in the European Journal of Endocrinology (EJE) to accessible content on sources such as PubMed.
