Undergraduate and Graduate Degrees
Students wishing to pursue specialization in the fields of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism may first receive medical undergraduate and graduate degrees through the Baylor College of Medicine School of Medicine.
The Section of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism offers programs designed to provide training in both clinical and research endocrinology in preparation for an independent academic career. Physicians with exceptional clinical skills who intend to pursue a career in clinical endocrinology will be considered for fellowship positions as well.
Endocrine Grand Rounds is a bi-weekly conference organized to increase awareness and implementation of the most current standards of care and guidelines for disorders of the endocrine system. This conference aims to inform the community of endocrinologists of the greater Houston area of the latest endocrine basic and clinical research breakthroughs.
The Section of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism hosts monthly seminars to enrich our faculty and trainees.
Endocrinology-Renal Raw Research Seminar
The intent of this seminar is to help investigators receive constructive feedback on their research and begin new collaborations. Investigators present unpublished data, which can range from speculative hypotheses to emerging data from studies in progress. Although this is done in a seminar format, it is not a didactic lecture but an interactive presentation. This seminar is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month in the Endocrinology conference room or via Zoom invitations.
The Baylor Diabetes and Immunometabolism Research Seminar
This is a monthly scientific seminar series featuring illuminating lectures by today’s leaders in basic and translational biomedical science from North America. This seminar is via Zoom to pull together our communities of faculty, trainees and lab personnel and promote engagement during this difficult time.
Annual Diabetes Symposium
The Annual Diabetes Symposium is held at Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center. Now in its 16th year, the Diabetes Update is designed for all physicians, nurses, diabetes educators, PAs, dieticians and trainees. It offers CME/CNE and MOC credits.

Alan J. Garber Annual Symposium on Advanced Diabetes Management for Endocrine Fellows
This annual symposium provides an update on diabetes management for endocrinology fellows. It was renamed in 2020 in honor of Dr. Alan Garber (1943-2020), professor of medicine, biochemistry, and molecular and cellular biology, who created and developed the program. For details, contact Ms. Linda Levine.
