ABOUT THE COURSE

WELCOME NOTE

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Gulf Chapter of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists It gives us a great pleasure to welcome you to the Essential Osteoporosis and Bone Densitometry Pre- Certification Course. The course is being conducted in collaboration with the International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) to be held at the Holiday Inn Dubai Festival City, Dubai, United Arab Emirates in the period 20th and the 21st of March, 2020.

This is going to be an advanced 2 days course which serves to educate concerned healthcare providers about Osteoporosis and bone densitometry. This will hopefully help to apply international standard practices in Osteoporosis diagnosis and management and to assure quality performance in performing and interpreting bone densitometry studies. The first day delivers the standard knowledge in Osteoporosis, performing and interpreting Quality DXA scans while day 2 focuses on the clinical assessment, prevention, treatment and management of osteoporosis and the essential role that high-quality DXA plays in diagnosis, treatment initiation and monitoring of osteoporotic patients.

Upon completion of the course delegates are eligible to set an exam at accredited examination centers to be certified by the International Society for Clinical Densitometry as DXA technician or scans interpreter/reporter.

We are looking forward to welcoming your participation in this rich and enjoyable educational experience to enhance your knowledge in Osteoporosis and provide you with an excellent forum for learning and networking.
