About Us

The section's focus of basic and clinical research includes diabetes, thyroid, metabolic bone, lipid, hypertensive, reproductive dysautonomic, and prostatic diseases.

Our multidisciplinary programs include an integrated research training program in molecular endocrinology with senior members of the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology. The Endocrine Fellowship Training Program is designed to provide excellent 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.

In addition, our clinicians provide state-of-the-art, caring treatment for patients with endocrine and metabolic disorders at four clinics in the medical center.

Research

The Section of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at Baylor College of Medicine supports a robust biomedical research base, covering a broad range of diseases and conditions and four areas of focus within the section's Diabetes Research Center: human research in diabetes, metabolism and nutrition; pathobiology and pathophysiology of diabetes and its complications; lipid, glucose and energy homeostasis at the molecular level; and molecular endocrinology.

Education

Our faculty train tomorrow's experts in clinical endocrinology. We offer a fellowship in both clinical and research endocrinology. The section also holds weekly grand rounds, which allow our fellowship trainees the opportunity to see a variety of patient cases.

Healthcare

Our clinicians provide state-of-the-art, caring treatment for patients with endocrine and metabolic disorders at four locations in the medical center. For more information, visit our healthcare site.
