Residents will participate in the management of inpatients and outpatients with endocrinology-related problems and diabetes mellitus. They will also serve as consultants for inpatients and outpatients with endocrinology-related problems and diabetes mellitus. These cases will serve as the base for rounds based teaching. In addition, residents will be exposed to other topics in Endocrinology during departmental conferences.
In specific, we expect residents to:
- Become familiar with common presentations of diseases like diabetes mellitus, and hypo-hyperthyroidism.
- Learn how to interview patients with common endocrine disorders.
- Learn management of common endocrine emergencies such as diabetic ketoacidosis, adrenal crisis, and thyrotoxicosis.
- Learn pharmacologic principles of therapeutics in endocrinology.
