Description and Goals:

This course is designed to provide students with broad clinical exposure to diabetes and all major endocrinopathies involving both inpatient and outpatient consultations.

The pathophysiological basis for the diagnosis and management of diabetes and endocrine disorders will be given special emphasis. Participation in daily rounds and weekly endocrine grand rounds, conferences and seminars will assist in offering the student broad clinical exposure. Students will also be encouraged to explore these clinical problems in depth through guided reading and library research projects. A series of selected topics will be treated didactically during the 4-week rotation to provide current knowledge of the major areas of current endocrinology.
