Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a lifelong and often complex condition affecting an estimated 1.6 million people in the United States alone. Individuals with T1D are at greater risk of severe hypoglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis, vascular complications, and diminished quality of life than the general population. The rapidly evolving landscape of T1D management includes pharmacological and technological advances that frequently lead to updated patient care guidelines. Thus, there is an urgent need to provide comprehensive medical education to endocrinology fellows who will enter the workforce and become the next leaders in T1D patient care. These early career endocrinologists will need to be proficient in accurate T1D diagnosis, effective patient-provider communication, latest treatment recommendations, and emerging research.

The Endocrine Society’s 9th annual Endocrine Fellows Series: Type 1 Diabetes Care and Management proposes to meet this need by leveraging the society’s high-quality and expansive membership and proven commitment to fellows. Learners will have exclusive access to state-of-the-art blended learning resources as well as unique in-person sessions offering representative-led device demonstrations and conversations with leading endocrinology faculty. This immersive conference is a transformative experience for fellows and ensures that the next generation of endocrinologists is poised to provide skilled and compassionate care to patients with T1D.

The Endocrine Society's 9th Annual “Type 1 Diabetes Fellows Series” includes 12 on-demand microlearning sessions from experts in the T1D field on topics including: Diagnosing and Understanding Risks of T1D; Screening, Preventing, and Treating Vascular Disease; Addressing Depression in T1D and Challenges across the Lifespan; Nutrition and Exercise in T1D Management; Diabetes, Pregnancy & Breastfeeding; The Pathogenesis of T1D: The Future for Preserving Beta Cell Function; and How to Effectively Bill for a Diabetes Visit.

Upon successful completion these educational initiatives, participants should be better able to:

  • Discuss the prevalence and progression of type 1 diabetes to recognize signs and differentially diagnose diabetes
  • Devise individualized treatment strategies that use new and emerging insulin and non-insulin therapies to manage individuals with type 1 diabetes with and without common comorbid conditions.
  • Incorporate diabetes technologies, including insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring, into treatment strategies for appropriate individuals with type 1 diabetes and evaluate data from those technologies.
  • Recognize and evaluate individuals with type 1 diabetes for signs of depression and distress using updated guidelines and practice tools.
  • Apply updated knowledge of treatments, practice guidelines, and clinical skills to improve care, long-term outcomes, and sick day management of individuals with type 1 diabetes.
The intended audience for this activity is endocrinologist fellows and early-career clinicians treating patients with type 1 diabetes.
