Roma – A new discipline for new times, the endocrinology 2 is born.0
Epocal day for endocrinologists and new year in the name of the beginning of a renewed path of Italian endocrinology. Today’s seminar, which brings together the general states of endocrinology, represents the fil rouge of a discussion that will continue until the next National Congress of the Italian Society of Endocrinology (SIE), in June 2017, which wants to propose a new face of the discipline ‘Endocrinology and Wellness Science’ and will end with a sort of white photographer on the state of the art which will be presented to administrators, political decision makers, institutions and media in the 2017 congress.
The comparison between today’s endocrinology and tomorrow, defined for this “endocrinology 2.0 ”, sees the face to face between today’s masters/clinics and the specializing in an alternation of short readings held by teachers and open discussions with the specializing, a sign of the change in progress.
“Endocrinology, in the last decade and in particular in the past five years, has grown very much – Professor declares Andrea Lenzi, President of the Italian Society of Endocrinology (SIE) – yes It has evolved both from the clinical point of view and the new skills it has faced, I refer to all those social importance pathologies such as obesity, osteoporosis, dysfunction of fertility and sexuality, rare diseases and tumors in endocrinology and many others for whom the role of the endocrinologist is not yet known to most patients, both from a scientific point of view, as today more and more is all linked to chemicals (food, environment, pollutants) and in particular hormones These are the substances characterized by the highest known biological power, influencing the life and health of men and women. Endocrinology never as today must be able to cure and manage three very important eras of an individual’s life: the development phase, the phase of maturity and the phase of old age, which must be governed better to avoid serious pathologies e disability. The endocrinologist – Continue Lenzi – must have the ability to adapt to these changes and for this reason it must receive training along the entire study path, from the degree course in Medicine and Surgery, to the School of Specialization, up to the Masters and PhDs of research and also a training Continue with the ECM.
The endocrinology of the future is oriented towards high specialization and the “super-endocrinologist” of tomorrow will be a link between multiple disciplines, but also a refined researcher and at the same time a expert clinician, prepared to face a company in continuous evolution“.
A revolution in various stages that have been the subject of the day of work. Starting with assistance, characterized more and more from being the endocrinologist the wellness doctor, but also a translational researcher who studies molecules and observes symptoms. The “super-endocrinologist” of the next few years is confronted with the other generalist specializations, in whose short list is enrolled by law, and with the use, bad use and abuse of drugs and diagnostics; The training is therefore also essential, which will prepare the endocrinologist to new scientific, technological and socio-economic dynamics, but also to organize and manage relationships with health services, especially in terms of costs and sustainability.
In conclusion, the convocation of the General States has redefined the main assets of endocrinology, increasingly oriented to become a new paradigm of assistance, care and research. University and scientific society will guide the endocrinologist towards an innovative wellness medicine at all ages.
