Endocrinology & Metabolism

PREREQUISITE: Requires completion of medicine clerkship.

Jeffrey Rothman, M.D., is Director of Endocrinology and Metabolism.

The Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism provides educational opportunities for resident physicians and students in a variety of ways.

Core curriculum conferences in endocrinology are held once every two weeks, and the Division's faculty participates in a variety of review courses held throughout the academic year.

Senior residents are assigned to a month-long endocrinology rotation that offers intensive education in both ambulatory and inpatient endocrine care. Residents also have the opportunity to participate in the activities of the Diabetic Foot Program and the Osteoporosis Detection and Treatment Program, both of which offer exposure to sophisticated technology and techniques.

Inpatient consultations are initially seen by the resident and then reviewed with the attending endocrinologist during daily consultation rounds. Residents participate in the weekly Diabetes/Endocrine Clinic as well as a faculty-office practice experience in endocrinology. Endocrinology fellows, in a SUNY/SIUH integrated fellowship program, participate in the patient care, education and research program. Residents are encouraged to develop and pursue faculty-mentored research projects in endocrinology.
