Department of EndocrinologyEndocrinology is the subspecialty of internal medicine concerned with the study of the biosynthesis, storage, chemistry, and physiological function of hormones and with the cells of the endocrine glands and tissues that secrete them.
Endocrinologists must become board certified in Internal Medicine by completing seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training. Then, for an additional two to three years, they study conditions specific to the endocrine system -- tissues and major endocrine glands, including the pituitary, pineal, thyroid, parathyroids, thymus, adrenals, pancreas, ovaries and testes. Endocrinologists provide treatment for a wide range of functions and disorders of the human body including diabetes, thyroid disorders, infertility, metabolism, glandular cancers, growth hormone deficiency, genetic dysfunction, heart disease, osteoporosis, obesity and hormonal imbalances.
