Endocrinology

The endocrinology unit presently comprises two faculty practices, one is located at Rochester General Hospital, and the other is the Endocrine-Diabetes Care & Resource Center at Alexander Park. All faculty members are active in patient care, teaching and research. Outpatient consultation and follow up care is provided to a large number of patients with various endocrine and metabolic disorders. There are relatively few inpatient consultations. 

Medical residents share the consultations and follow up with an endocrine fellow when one is on service. Education is through a combination of patient-based discussions and reading. Residents are exposed to a wide variety of problems and gain broad experience in diabetes, thyroid disorders and hyperlipidemia.

There are periodic city-wide conferences in general endocrinology and residents on rotation are encouraged to attend these. The endocrinologists who attend these conferences are on the faculty and in private practice. Residents on service throughout the city also attend.
