Welcome to ISPAE
The Indian Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Endocrinology (ISPAE) aims to promote greater knowledge, research, education and clinical practice of pediatric endocrinology, metabolism and diabetes, especially as relevant to India. It also hopes to foster closer interaction among those working in this specialty, across the vast geographical expanse of India, so our patients can get better and more seamless care. It works with other important Societies, including the Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP), the Endocrine Society of India (ESI), the Asia Pacific Pediatric Endocrine Society (APPES), the European Society for Pediatric Endocrinology (ESPE), and the International Society for Pediatric & Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD).
Welcome to our website, which we constantly try to make more useful and interactive, especially through initiatives like an interactive forum, while we continue our regular features like the e-newsletter , CAPENEWS, now in its 19th year.
Our biennial meetings, ISPAE 2009 (New Delhi), ISPAE 2011 (Calicut), and ISPAE 2013 (Bangalore), residential intensive pediatric endocrine training workshops, ISPAE-PET 2009, 2011 and 2013, and a childhood diabetes meeting in 2012 (Delhi), have been very successful. PET was started with the help of ESPE, and innovation for India: it has been much appreciated and imitated! Our annual Chapter Symposiums during the annual IAP meetings, PEDICON, are also well attended, as more and more pediatricians realize the importance of this hitherto neglected specialty. We look forward to an exciting ISPAE 2015 and also ISPAE-PET in Gurgaon in November 2015.
