Endocrinology Chief's Letter

Welcome to the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism. I have been a faculty member since 1982 and Chief of the division since 2003. Our division is dedicated to the delivery of state-of-the-art clinical care for patients with endocrine diseases, diabetes and metabolic diseases. Our faculty lead clinical trials and other scientific research aimed at the discovery of new knowledge and innovative approaches to improve the treatment and prevention of diabetes and other endocrine diseases. We have presented our work at regional, national and international scientific meetings, and published our research in high impact journals. Our faculty have secured multiple prestigious grants from the National Institutes of Health and other extramural sources. We teach endocrinology to medical students and residents, train future generations of endocrinologists through our fellowship program, and support the development of our trainees and faculty. We are proud of our accomplishments and strive for continuing advancements in clinical care, education and research.
