St. Luke’s Medical Center Quezon City

SECTION OF ENDOCRINOLOGY, DIABETES AND METABOLISM

Mission: Patient care with Endocrinology’s Best

Vision: The leader in endocrine care and learning

The Section of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism of the St. Luke’s Medical Center- Quezon City maintains a busy inpatient and outpatient consultation service, both in the private practice and social service settings. Inpatient and outpatient care of patients with diabetes mellitus constitutes the main bulk of daily activities of the consultants and fellows. Thyroid diseases are the next most common condition seen by the service. A variety of other endocrine problems, including pituitary diseases, adrenal problems, bone, mineral and reproductive disorders, lipid and other metabolic problems are likewise seen regularly.

Given this load of clinical cases, the section has ample opportunities for extensive patient care as well as for training and clinical research. Interaction and collaboration with other specialties and disciplines, including other Internal Medicine subspecialties, Surgical specialties, Dietary and Nursing services, Pathology, Laboratory Medicine, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine are requisites of daily endocrine practice. Hence, the main thrusts of the activities of the section are centered on patient care, complemented by training of postgraduate fellows, residents, interns and students as well as relevant clinical endocrine research.

The training program started in January 1998.
