Division of Endocrinology Focuses on Research and Patient Care

The Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University of New Mexico commits to excellent patient care, research and education of fellows, residents and medical students. They receive training in adult endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism, including:

  • Insulin pump technology
  • Continuous glucose monitoring
  • Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) technology
  • Use of ultrasound and fine needle aspiration in evaluating thyroid nodules

Clinical Care

The university houses the only medical school in New Mexico. So all patients in the state — plus patients from western Texas, southern Colorado and eastern Arizona — receive referrals to us for specialty endocrine treatment. The division also handles all endocrine consultations for the Albuquerque Veterans Administration Medical Center. This wide geographical referral area generates a broad spectrum of endocrine diseases for study and clinical care.

Education and Research

Fellows work with faculty in a wide range of scholarly projects on endocrine diseases. Four fellows share responsibility for case conferences, journal clubs, inpatient and outpatient consultations, and patient care.
