The Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism is an academically oriented division dedicated to excellence in patient care and research in endocrinology. The Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism trains fellows, residents, and medical students in the area of adult endocrinology and metabolism.
Since UNM is the only medical school in the State of New Mexico, all patients in our state plus patients from western Texas, southern Colorado, and eastern Arizona, are referred to us for specialty endocrine treatment. The Endocrine Division also handles all endocrine consultations for the Albuquerque VA Hospital. This wide geographical referral area generates a very broad spectrum of endocrine diseases.
Fellows are encouraged to become involved in research with endocrine faculty members. Ongoing research projects in diabetes, adrenal, bone, and lipid metabolism offer a wide range of research projects. Fellows attend and participate in patient care in several subspecialty clinics including bone, male/female reproduction, pediatric endocrinology, diabetes, transgender, and thyroid biopsy clinic. Four fellows share responsibility for case conferences, journal clubs, inpatient and outpatient consultations, and patient care.
