Endocrinology is the subspecialty of internal medicine that focuses on the diagnosis
and care of disorders of the endocrine (glandular) system and the associated metabolic
dysfunction. Endocrinologists are frequently involved with the diagnosis and management
Endocrinologists may practice in a dedicated endocrine practice, as part of a multi-specialty
group, or may maintain a split practice seeing both endocrinology and general internal
medicine patients. They may also provide consultation for other physicians or hospitals.
Academic endocrinologists often participate in basic science or clinical research
and teach medical students and resident trainees.
Training in endocrinology includes two years of additional training following successful
completion of a basic internal medicine residency training program. Following completion,
Endocrine, Diabetes, and Metabolism fellows are eligible for board certification by
the American Board of Internal Medicine.
In the 2016-2017 academic year, there are 141 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical
Education (ACGME)-accredited training programs in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism
with 631 trainees. There are 41 ACGME-accredited training programs with 121 trainees

programs with 251 trainees in pediatric endocrinology.
