GMED 5039 - Endocrinology Externship (7 Credit Hours)



Inpatient consultations and ambulatory clinics at the MCGH and VAMC are the primary activities of the elective. These activities are carried out in association with one or more medical residents and a clinical endocrine fellow. They are supervised by members of the Section of Endocrinology and Metabolism. The supervised management of cases encountered in these settings will provide the vehicle for teaching. Thyroid, adrenal, parathyroid, pituitary and gonadal diseases as well as diabetes, developmental problems, virilization and electrolyte disorders will be discussed. There will be opportunities for didactic presentations and students will be expected to read relevant clinical literature. A textbook and collection of reprints is provided on loan and a series of core didactic lectures is presented for students on the rotation. Student responsibilities will include participation in Section inpatient consultation and clinic activities, as well as the weekly clinical conference at which case presentations will be made.
