Pediatrics Endocrinology Elective at Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York
The elective in Pediatric Endocrinology is designed to expand the fourth year student's experience with commonly encountered diseases of the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas and adrenal glands. The student will learn evidence-based guidelines for evaluation and treatment of endocrine disorders. An appreciation will be gained for the importance of the endocrine system in general pediatric and adolescent medicine. The student will evaluate both new and established out-patients in daily clinics at Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York and have an opportunity to perform in-patient endocrinology consultations. No night or weekend service is required. Methods of instruction are preceptorship with faculty and fellows, attendance at endocrine rounds and conferences, as well as online case-based tutorials and directed readings from current medical literature. At the end of the month, the student will present an in-depth review of a single topic of interest based on his clinical experience and readings.
