Clinical Electives Program: Endocrinology and Metabolism

Fall, Winter, and Spring Sessions. Four-Week Session

Rotation Coordinator:
Monica C. Skarulis, MD

Rotation Description
Patients with a wide variety of endocrine and metabolic disorders are under study in the various wards and outpatient clinics of NIH institutes.

Students will become part of a team consisting of clinical associates and senior investigators and will spend most of their time on the clinical wards rotating among the endocrine branches of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). It is expected that students will complete a workup and presentation regarding several patients each week; participate in daily rounds; and participate in ongoing clinical investigative activities. There is also a half-day meeting each week in which students will participate in the study and care of outpatients. The student program will be integrated with the Inter-Institute Endocrinology Fellowship Program. Students will participate with clinical associates in various activities including clinical rounds, endocrine grand rounds and various lectures.
