The Pediatric Diabetes program provides state-of-the-art care to patients and families across the state of Michigan.  In addition, the Division is renowned for expertise in disorders of growth and puberty, obesity, neuroendocrine disorders, and adrenal and thyroid disorders.

The Pediatric Endocrine surgery program is unique in Michigan and has reached national prominence.  

Faculty members actively participate in the education of pediatric residents and medical students in the classroom and the clinical setting. The division also has a superb Pediatric Endocrinology fellowship training program which is supported by a NIH T32 training grant focusing on the developmental origins of metabolic disorders.

The Division Director is expected to lead and expand programs to deliver state-of-the-art endocrinology care and research, and to promote the academic career development of faculty and fellows.
