We invite you to the 2019 Bone Curriculum Symposium organised by the KBVR/SRBR Osteoporosis and Fracture Prevention Group at La Hulpe on 15 – 16 March 2019.
The bone curriculum serves as a lecture cycle on bone which is covered within three consecutive yearly symposia. The scope of the bone curriculum is to provide high quality continuous education for clinicians of all specialities interested in, seeing or treating patients with osteoporosis and / or bone diseases and is also a structured educational programme for trainees in rheumatology and other specialities looking at bone and calcium – phosphate metabolism disorders.

The lectures provide up to date background knowledge, overviews and reviews on calcium and phosphate metabolism, bone biology, physiology, pathophysiology, and disorders, osteoporosis, epidemiology, diagnosis, management and treatment. Further, interactions of the skeleton with neurological, muscular and other organ systems, as well as fracture and fall risk are addressed.
The bone curriculum course certificate is accredited to participants of three symposia.
Regarding radioprotection courses, the next full course is planned in 2021, the next refresher course in 2020.
On Friday, 15 March, the yearly pre-symposium course on Rare Bone Diseases takes place. This course mainly intends to provide general information on various rare bone diseases to bone interested second-line clinicians but is also an educational exchange platform for dedicated bone specialists.
We look forward to meeting you at the 2019 Bone Curriculum Symposium.

With very best regards
On behalf of the KBVR / SRBR Osteoporosis and Fracture Prevention Group
