We are pleased to announce a day-long Postgraduate Course dedicated to sarcoidosis at the upcoming ATS meeting in Washington DC on June 20, 2017 (ATS 2017 registration) . The emphasis of the course will be to develop a fundamental appreciation of many of the facets of sarcoidosis necessary to establish a comprehensive sarcoidosis clinic. The course features a number of excellent speakers, and will highlight multidisciplinary discussions of difficult issues in diagnosis and therapy at the end of each half day. The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (www.stopsarcoidosis.org) is sponsoring a limited number of stipend. As to defray registration costs of the course. Come hear some of the leading experts in the world, meet new colleagues, and buff your knowledge base all at the same time!

This is an overview of the most recent advances in the diagnosis and management of the whole patient for sarcoidosis. It would be of particular interest to individuals who are establishing a multidisciplinary sarcoidosis clinic, or as a refresher to those trained in some aspects of sarcoidosis. Two panel-based, case-based discussions will summarize and incorporate the decision-making and choices of treating patients with sarcoidosis, with practical information about difficult diagnosis, mimickers, initiating therapy, stopping therapy, how to manage toxicities, how to combine medications, and assessment of other problems like pulmonary hypertension. It is meant to tie together the concepts from the prior speakers.
