These are the advance abstracts of the third clinical congress of the Gulf Chapter of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists to be held on 29-31 of October 2015. The educational objective of the congress is to give a “state of the art in endocrine practice”. International and regional key opinion leaders were invited to address topical issues relating to the practice of diabetes care and clinical endocrinology. We present the abstracts of the congress as submitted by the authors after minimal restyling and editing to suit the publication requirements of the journal. Several major issues and topical themes with wide interests in the profession were addressed in 9 plenary lectures. Six clinical practice symposia were developed to target the specific educational needs of the target audience subgroups. In addition to, 16 practical issues will addressed in “Meet the Expert”- type of interactive workshops. Free communications from abstracts submitted by delegates, reflecting mostly the regional epidemiology and clinical practice in diabetes care and endocrinology, were selected for presentations as either oral (10) or poster presentations (30). By publishing the proceedings of our third annual congress in this open access journal, we hope to extend the benefit to those who could not make it to the live presentations and give a safe home for all the abstracts for future reference. Making them permanently available may facilitate regional and international networking and collaboration between clinicians and academics of shared interests.
