New course on genetic disorders of bone and their adult expression

Exclusive IOF pilot course aims to help bone specialists identify and manage rare genetic disorders of bone; applications are accepted until October 1, 2016.

Due to the rarity of genetic bone disorders, few physicians are really equipped to identify and manage adult patients who present with such disorders. 

The new IOF course 'Genetic disorders of bone and their adult expression', to be held from November 10 to 11, 2016 in Geneva, Switzerland, will now offer a small group of participants an exclusive opportunity to learn about rare bone disorders and their identification and management. The course, reserved for a maximum of 25 participants, is designed to allow for interaction and discussion with the distinguished faculty of experts. 

Applications for the limited slots available are accepted until October 1st at the latest. The course is free and grants towards the cost of travel are offered. Priority is given to IOF members of the CSA or those affiliated to IOF CNS member societies.

Upon completion of the course, it is hoped that participants will:

  • Have a better understanding of rare bone disorders
  • Be able to better identify people suffering from rare bone disorders and be able to outline useful diagnostic strategies
  • Be able to offer appropriate targeted therapies for patients suffering from these rare disorders
