In this course, the student will (1) acquire experience in the diagnosis and management of endocrine and metabolic disorder, including diabetes and thyroid disease, (2) become familiar with some of the basic biochemical and pathophysiological disturbances associated with these disorders, and (3) become familiar with the common endocrine function tests and their usefulness and limitations. The rotation will center around outpatient clinics. Students will attend 2 or more outpatient clinics per week in which endocrine problems are seen as a major component of the patient population. There will be frequent informal teaching sessions in association with patient care. The student will be evaluated on a subjective basis based upon the attending physician's interview with the student and observations of the student's performance.
