Overview

This one-day course will highlight recent advances in the management of thyroid diseases. New multidisciplinary guidelines for patient management are issued annually on diverse topics in the treatment of thyroid disease. In 2012, these included molecular pathogenesis and prognostication in thyroid cancer. More so than ever before, innovations of new surgical technologies, thyroid cancer diagnostic tests, and new therapies for thyroid cancer are influencing patient care options. The format of the course is designed to address the key concepts of these advancements during lectures, panel discussions, and operative technique videos. Ample time will be allotted for participation by the audience with question and answer sessions.

Cleveland and Northeastern Ohio are home to a large population affected by thyroid diseases. The Cleveland Clinic was established by George Crile, a surgeon, who pioneered the care of thyroid diseases in the early 20th century. The course is also organized in honor of January as Thyroid Awareness Month.
