Welcome to the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, providing the very best in patient-centered care, in a caring and compassionate environment. Our physicians are faculty members in the Department of Medicine at the UNC School of Medicine, applying the newest research and therapies to patients with diabetes, endocrine and metabolic diseases. We continually strive to improve the quality of patient care with our comprehensive approach, teaching the science and best practices of endocrine care.

Our physicians provide outpatient and inpatient consultative care for patients with diagnostic or treatment issues, for endocrine and metabolic diseases. Learn more about the patient care we provide and our clinic.

The Division has a long tradition of excellence in basic science, and translational and clinical research. Faculty research focuses on new modalities for treatment of diabetes and obesity, the factors that are responsible for improving bone mineral density, molecular mechanisms of obesity, and lipid metabolism, particularly as it relates to insulin secretion.

Our greatest teaching efforts focus on clinical training of students (future doctors, nurses, dietitians, physician assistants, and researchers). This includes the interns and residents who will be the primary care doctors and specialists of the future, and in particular, the fellows who are fully trained doctors preparing for a future career in endocrinology. Fellows are also full members of the division, and with support from faculty, fully participate in clinical care, teaching and research.  We also provide continuing education for physicians throughout the UNC Health Care System, through national and international programs.

Thank you for your interest in our programs, and please contact us to learn more. We look forward to serving you.
