1 Szent István UNIVERSITY FACULTY OF VETERINARY SCIENCE ENDO th Budapest Workshop on Clinical Endocrinology Endocrine and Reproductive D isorders in Com panion A nim als 20 th -28 th June, 2001 Budapest, Hungary

2 Dear Colleagues! Improving and harmonising of clinicians (first of all Ph.D students', residences' and young assistants') professional knowledge is a priority goal in our knowledge based era. International courses on specific issues designed for young professionals can serve effectively this go al. Our Faculty of Veterinary Science has more than 200 years experience in education and research. It answering to this challenge arranged the first Budapest Workshop on Clinical Endocrinology, - a summer school like course some years ago - using the framework of VETNEST association of veterinary faculties in Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia. The growing number and satisfaction of the participants encouraged us to continue this initiative of capacity building. The current year course is focused on clinical and reproductive endocrinology of companion animals. During the 8 days of the course you will have the chance to listen to internationally recognised senior scientists' lectures, take part on practical demonstration and training in high ualified laboratories and display and discuss your own research activity. These provide settings for deep discussion and shared learning in contemporary issues of veterinary endocrinology. Furthermore, it intend to serve the purpose of founding and supporting professional connections and friendship. And - last but not least - you will enjoy the hospitality and beauties of Budapest, capital of Hungary. We invite all clinicians dealing with endocrine malfunctions and reproductive disorders of companion animals first of all the young professionals, researchers and Ph.D students not only from the countries of the VETMED faculties, but from any other states of the World. Similar to our invited keynote speakers, who come from several European countries, as well as from the USA. We will be glad to see you in Budapest! Prof. Gyula Huszenicza, DVM, PhD
