The BVAMC houses 137 beds and has over 8,000 inpatient admissions and 500,000 outpatient visits each year. Approximately 4000 endocrine/diabetes outpatient visits occur each year. Involvement in the care of patients at the BVAMC permits the fellow a broader exposure to the spectrum of endocrine diseases than would otherwise be possible by seeing patients drawn solely from the population at large. Furthermore, the BVAMC serves a referral center for patients with more complex endocrine disorders from the surrounding VA Medical Centers and clinics.
