Our program offers many diverse opportunities for domestic and visiting clerkship students interested in the field of endocrinology, ranging from outpatient clinical endocrinology to consultation services.
Basic and Clinical Research:
Our research activities are led by clinicians and basic scientists. We span a wide range of investigations, from clinical research trials to models of health care delivery.
We construct Molecular Endocrinology Symposia annually. This symposia aims to entail a close collaboration between clinicians and basic scientists across institutes to discuss and and share knowledge about the clinical and molecular aspects of Endocrinology.
