New Programs to Launch at ENDO 2017


As of this posting, ENDO 2017 is only two weeks away. But not to worry; there’s still plenty of time book your spot in the world’s largest endocrinology conference.

Whether you’re arriving in time for the preconference program on Friday, March 31, or on Saturday, April 1 for the official kickoff, there will be plenty of the scientific sessions, ENDO Expo, posters, and more that you’ve come to expect from the Endocrine Society’s annual conference.

However, there are a few things attendees are not expecting that will be making their debut at ENDO 2017:

Global Leadership Academy. Debuting on Friday March 31, the Global Leadership Academy is specially designed for endocrinologists between the five- and 10-year marks in their careers who are looking to gain some vital leadership skills.

First-Time Attendee Focus. If this is your first ENDO, we have complied resources specially designed to help you make the most out of your experience. Visit to stay in the loop with all first-time attendee activities and information.

Two Days of Knockout Rounds. Since it proved to be such a huge success last year, this year ENDO 2017 is going to have two separate sessions of Knockout Rounds where young researchers will have only three minutes — and one slide — to present and defend their scientific findings. Get there early because last year it was standing room only! Saturday (Room WW41A) and Sunday (Room W206) at 2:15 – 3:15.

Collaboration Suites. Attendees can reserve complimentary private meeting space for informal gatherings from three to 20 people. These conference rooms are available for 45-minute periods starting on the hour from 8:00 a.m. on a first come, first served basis.  Each room has a conference table and chairs, power, projector and screen. These suites are the perfect place to work on existing collaborations or start new collaborations by inviting ENDO attendees to join you for topical discussions. Reserve your suite at

Science Hubs. Located in ENDOExpo, Science Hubs host a wide variety of programs. Whether it’s a summary of the top posters or details on the latest Endocrine Society clinical practice guideline, the Science Hubs are the place for you. A full schedule is available via the ENDO 2017 Meetings App.

Collaboration with the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons. On Monday, April 3, over 500 endocrine surgeons will come to ENDO 2017 for joint sessions ranging from challenging cases to a debate focused on the controversies in thyroid cancer surgery.
