Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

Chief:  Stephen R Hammes, M.D., Ph.D.

The Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry consists of a diverse cadre of physicians and scientists with interests in all aspects of Endocrinology and Diabetes. The Division has three main missions:

  • Provide top level care for all forms of endocrine disorders
  • Maintain internationally recognized basic and clinical endocrine research programs
  • Offer excellent training for the next generation of academic endocrinologists.

Clinical Program: The clinical program in the Division of Endocrinology provides care for all major endocrine disorders. In addition to diabetes, this includes disorders of bone, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal gland, and gonads. Our Diabetes Center sees over 4000 patients each year, and runs one of the largest insulin pump programs in the Northeast. In addition, the Division runs several subspecialty clinics, including an active multi-disciplinary pituitary clinic with the Department of Neurosurgery, a combined Endocrine Tumor Clinic with the General Endocrine surgeons, a Metabolic Bone Disease Clinic, and a Gestational Diabetes Clinic.

Research Program: The Division boasts several research laboratories studying a wide-range of subjects in Endocrinology, including bone physiology, cancer biology, steroid production and signaling, reproduction, circadian rhythms, cardiac development, and diabetes.

Fellowship Program: The Endocrinology and Metabolism Fellowship is a three year program that provides in-depth clinical and research training in Endocrinology. Our educational mission is to produce academic physician scientists of the highest caliber.
