Advanced Clinical Postgraduate Virtual Meeting


Saturday 29th October, Sunday 30th October 2022

Update your skills in the management of bone and mineral disorders at this year's ANZBMS Advanced Clinical Postgraduate meeting. 

Over two half-days on zoom, a panel of experts will cover a wide range of themes from challenging cases in osteoporosis to the latest concepts in sequential therapies and high-imminent fracture risk.  

Skeletal health in patients with cancer, renal disease, inflammatory conditions and the very elderly will also be covered. 

Presentations will be clinically focussed, pragmatic and interactive. 

Although targeted to specialists in training, this meeting is ideal for any specialist seeking an up-to-date revision in bone and mineral disorders. Physicians and allied health practitioners from several disciplines including endocrinology, nephrology, rheumatology, rehabilitation and geriatric medicine, are invited to attend.
