2019 ATA Trainees day

2021 E. Chester Ridgway Trainee Conference

We are excited to announce the annual E. Chester Ridgway Trainee Conference taking place virtually on November 5-6, 2021. We are offering a day and a half of lectures that will advance understanding of the thyroid disease and thyroid cancer.

The first day will include basic, clinical, and surgical topics of interest to all focusing on thyroid hormone synthesis, action and metabolism followed by two “breakout” sessions — one for the basic scientists, and the other for the surgeons and clinicians, with topics geared towards the specific interests of those registrants. Day two will focus on thyroid nodules and cancer – we will have an Ultrasound and Nodules course followed by a Tumor Board.

Trainees who registered for the 90th Annual Meeting of the ATA will be automatically registered for the conference in November 2021. 

Registration is now open for all – https://members.thyroid.org/ridgway21
