join the leaders in advanced anti-aging medicine

Take part in a deep dive into the fields of endocrinology and hormone management and the newer science of Intracrinology through this advanced, 3-day course. Led by renowned scientists, researchers, and clinicians, participants will examine the metabolites and receptor actions of the major reproductive hormones and will learn to define the various actions of the hormone and metabolites on translational physiological function. This course will also aspire to connect the various hormonal axes from the hypothalamus, pituitary to final organ action and examine the role of insulin, IGF, and various hormones such as growth hormone and oxytocin. Finally, a systems biology approach at each major body system will be discussed to elicit the cellular actions of these hormones on various tissues and organs.

This course is the next level in developing your expertise in hormone management and will leave you better equipped to solve your more complicated hormonal cases.


  • Examine the role of receptor type and locations of the major reproductive hormones.
  • Refine your knowledge of hormone metabolites and their role in various physiological actions and illnesses.
  • Analyze the additional hormones in the symphony and their contribution to wellness or disease.
  • Discuss the broad ranging effects of hormones across cells, tissues, and organs.
  • Outline treatment options to optimal bone health
  • Define the role of intracrinology and the ability of the body to synthesize hormones on demand in various tissues.
