Welcome to ISE
Since its foundation in 1960, the International Society of Endocrinology (ISE) has pursued the worldwide advancement of education, science and patient care in endocrinology.
Today the society forms the global network integrating all areas of endocrinology and metabolism. We unite the global endocrinology community to facilitate international cooperation between our member organisations and stakeholders.
We provide a platform to co-ordinate scientific exchange, education and and partnerships between endocrinology organisations and healthcare professionals around the world.
We particularly focus on supporting early career endocrinologists around the world and championing endocrinology networks in developing countries and regions.
Our International Congress of Endocrinology – ICE – is organised every two years in a different region of the world, in collaboration with one of our members, and serves as the main outlet to disseminate the latest developments in the broad field of endocrinology.
What We Do
The International Society of Endocrinology has recently set out a five years strategic plan and will focus on the following priorities:
We wish to enhance educational opportunities for endocrinologists around the world. Through our global education hub and various events, we provide access to and bridge gaps in educational resources and services that improve and foster the life-long learning needs of the global endocrinology community.
We organise, support & endorse convening platforms at national, regional and global level to advance knowledge sharing, research & clinical practice in endocrinology worldwide.
Our flagship global congress, The International Congress of Endocrinology, features the latest science, best practice, education & networking opportunities to meet the needs of our diverse & growing international community:
We also support our members and partners activities by endorsing and promoting regional events and knowledge sharing opportunities, and financially supporting local activities, with a focus on the most underrepresented areas of endocrinology in the world.
Our Members and Partners are the heart of our society. We engage a vibrant community working together at national, regional level, to achieve common global goals related to the field of endocrinology.
We recognise the need to support early career researchers to access ongoing development opportunities with travel fellowships and other programs.
We wish to guide and assist the next generation in successfully navigating the international research landscape & increasingly varied & flexible career paths and develop programs and platforms to enable a global voice for young leaders.
We wish to raise the profile of the society and deliver our promises in synergy with robust leadership, and in a sustainable way. We are the go-to global entry point for information & resources on endocrinology, linking the global community and encouraging effective two-way communication amongst stakeholders.
