Endocrinology

This rotation is spent with a clinical endocrinologist on staff at the Morton Plant Mease Diabetes Center. We become very comfortable with the management of diabetes with both insulin and oral medications. We have the opportunity to spend time with Morton Plant Mease dietitians and nurse educators so that we are comfortable giving dietary advice on counting carbs, reducing saturated fat intake, or avoiding salt. Finally, we are exposed to the work-up of common endocrinologic problems such as a thyroid nodule or galactorrhea.
