Debrecen, Hungary, Hotel Divinus*****

13-14 October 2022

The Endocrinology Update – Romanian – Polish – Hungarian Symposium has been endorsed by the European Society of Endocrinology who has also provided financial support through an ESE Small Meeting Grant.


The idea of joint meetings between Eastern European endocrine societies was initiated by a few leading endocrinologists of the Polish and Romanian Endocrine Societies. The first two meetings were organized in Timisoara (prof. Ioana Zosin, 2015) and Wroclaw (prof. Marek Bolanowski, 2017). At the 2019 meeting (Cluj-Napoca, organized by prof. Carmen Georgescu), the three Societies agreed to transform the meeting into a trilateral regional conference, ROM-POL-HU. Each of these meetings was a real professional success and, at the same time, a friendly gathering of members of our Societies.

Now, we are pleased to invite you to the 4th Conference, to be held in Debrecen, Hungary, between 13 and 14 October 2022. The University of Debrecen was founded in 1538. Currently there are 30 000 students including 6000 young people from abroad. The Division of Endocrinology, led by professor Endre V. Nagy, is part of the Faculty of Medicine, and is one of the four major Hungarian referral centers for endocrine patients. Available endocrine diagnostic and treatment modalities include PET CT and SPECT CT, intraarterial Ca stimulation for insulinoma localization, radioiodine for thyroid diseases, and gamma knife. The main focus in Debrecen is thyroid research, including autoimmunity, thyroid eye disease and thyroid malignancies.

The old town of Debrecen is dominated by the Great Reform Church. The city is often called the Calvinist Rome for being protestant for centuries. In the second largest city of Hungary, inhabitants used to own agricultural fields in a 50 km radius around Debrecen, with industries specialized for plant and animal products. By now, there are all types of industry with a dynamic expansion; in 2021 the Financial Times ranked Debrecen in the top 10 of the World’s best investment promotion destinations, along with New York, Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Berlin.  

The three National Societies agreed on a program which covers many aspects of endocrinology. You may choose to stay at the Conference venue hotel; for young participants, less expensive accommodation is offered at a 12 minutes walking distance (or 3 stops on tram line 1).

Please come and join us for the ROM-POL-HU Debrecen in October.
