Home / About Us


Since its foundation in 1960, the International Society of Endocrinology (ISE) has pursued the worldwide advancement of education, science and patient care in Endocrinology.

Today the society forms a strategic federation of National Endocrine Societies which aims to stimulate international cooperation and coordinate scientific exchange, debate, and dissemination between healthcare professionals around the world.

We are proud to say our current membership comprises over 70 national endocrinology societies, representing nearly 50,000 endocrinologists worldwide. The flagship of the ISE remains its International Congress which is now held in rotation every two years in partnership with one of its National Societies across The Americas, Europe/Africa and Asia/Oceania. The ISE head offices are based in the UK at the University of Leeds within the School of Medicine.
