Department and Faculty
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are well regarded in their field. You will have direct access to these individuals throughout your training program.
Endocrinology, Metabolism, Diabetes, Nutrition and Internal Medicine is a division of the Department of Internal Medicine at Mayo Clinic. It has a staff of more than 40 clinical endocrinologists who care for patients with a wide range of common as well as unusual disorders and dysfunctions.
In addition, the department has five full-time laboratory-based research endocrinologists. Each member of the staff has developed a clinical or basic research expertise in a specific area of endocrinology, providing a strong and uniquely comprehensive foundation for training.
Patients with problems involving the hormone-secreting endocrine glands present a wide array of symptoms, signs, syndromes and diseases, many of which are interrelated. A unique aspect of the division is its integrated approach to problems of human nutrition in disease states and for health improvement and maintenance.
You will be assigned a faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Your adviser also will serve as a contact point, introducing you and your family to Rochester and the Mayo Clinic system.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during noon and/or morning lectures and participate in hospital rounds. You will be encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
