Training Program in Endocrinology, Diabetes,
and Metabolism (T32)
Endocrine-related illnesses such as obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and osteoporosis are major public health problems that contribute to significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. As a result, there is a desperate need for motivated, well-trained academic endocrinologists and scientists with a strong commitment to understanding and treating these devastating disorders and their complications. To address this need, we have developed an outstanding NIH T32-funded Training Program in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism that leverages the rich scientific and clinical resources at the University of Pittsburgh.
Our core mission is to train the next generation of scientists and academic leaders in the field of Endocrinology by immersing them in our innovative multidisciplinary and translational research programs. Indeed, our training program has a history of more than 40 years of success in equipping MD and PhD trainees with the research and career skills required for successful independent academic careers in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism. We intend to continue this mission for years to come, and in doing so, will further the understanding and treatment of these increasingly prevalent endocrine disorders.
