YDEF Annual Day
The YDEF Annual Day brings over a hundred specialist registrars and young consultants from across the UK on the eve of Diabetes UK Annual Processional Conference. As well as excellent free day of lectures and workshops, we provide a bursary (of £150) towards the cost of travel and accommodation for delegates. We were delighted to host our most recent event on Tuesday 4th March, which was a great success.
The 2014 final programme is available here.
What is it?
YDEF Day is a whole day of specialist workshops and plenaries, finishing with a lively debate, providing an excellent educational and networking opportunity. The event is the largest gathering of diabetes trainees and young consultants and is FREE of cost to attend. As well as meals and refreshments, we also organise a conference dinner, also provided to you FREE of cost.
The final 2014 programme is available here.
When is the next event?
The YDEF Annual Day is held on the eve of Diabetes UK Professional Conference. The next day will be in London on the 10th March 2015.
How do I register?
Online applications are now closed for 2014. There is a web-based application form. We also ask for £50 cheque deposit, which will only be cashed in the event of non-attendance. Cheques need to be sent to Elise Harvey, Red Hot Irons Ltd, P.O. Box 2927, Malmesbury, SN16 0WZ. Cheques should be payable to Diabetes UK. Your place will not be guaranteed until the cheque deposit is received. Once your registration is submitted, you will receive a confirmatory email - please note that details won't be available from Elise until after 6th January.
Accommodation and meals
The YDEF will arrange for rooms to be available at a hotel near the venue in London. More details nearer the time.
Your registration includes all your meals and refreshments for the YDEF day, including the conference dinner. If you are unable to stay for dinner, please do let us know in advance. If you are allocated a slot and do not attend, we may not be in a position to refund your deposit.
Diabetes UK APC Registration
As always, you have to register separately for Diabetes UK Annual Professional Conference. This can be done through the Diabetes UK website. We have in the past had an agreement from Lilly that a minimum of 50 places will be available for the main Diabetes UK APC - these will be administered by Lilly and will be available on a first come first serve basis. We will let you know how to register when we have received your application and deposit cheque.
The dress-code is smart casual.

YDEF Day Sponsors
We are grateful to our pharmaceutical industry partners for their generous support over the past ten years. The YDEF Day is currently sponsored by Novo Nordisk and Sanofi Diabetes. Without pharma support, we wouldn't be able to run these days, so do show your appreciation and visit their stands.
