Working as an Endocrinology and Diabetes Advanced Trainee
Endocrinology is the study of hormones and hormone producing tissues, both their normal physiology and their pathophysiology. The specialty of clinical endocrinology encompasses the diagnosis and management of disorders of the endocrine system.

The spectrum of endocrine disorders includes diabetes and its complications; thyroid, pituitary and adrenal disease; gonadal disorders and infertility; neuroendocrine conditions; benign and malignant glandular tumours; disorders of growth; genetic and congenital glandular dysfunction; lipid and nutritional abnormalities; menopausal disorders; and osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease.
