Medical Education

The Division’s faculty are actively engaged in teaching activities along the continuum of medical education. We teach both 1st and 2nd year medical students during their endocrine/diabetes blocks. Student reviews of our lectures and small group sessions have been extremely favorable. Several of the faculty have joint appointments in basic science departments (Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, Department of Physiology) and graduate programs (calendar, Genetic Counseling, Epidemiology, Physiology, Nutrition) and engage in teaching of graduate students both formally in the class-room, and as mentors and thesis advisors in the research setting. Each summer, we host approximately 10 high school and undergraduate students in the laboratory as part of an organized NHLBI funded summer student program. Many have gone on to medical school.
