Welcome address

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee it is a great pleasure for me to welcome

you in Dubrovnik for the 8th ESE postgraduate course in clinical endocrinology

Once again, you will have the opportunity to meet colleagues, friends and members

of the ESE to discuss the latest developments in scientific research and clinical

practice.

Dubrovnik is a pearl of the eastern Adriatic. Its old town, surrounded by the city walls

remained untouched by the centuries that passed by. As the meeting venue is in the

vicinity of the old town entrance, you will have the opportunity to explore it by

yourself.
