Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes


About the Division

The Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes delivers outstanding patient care and trainee education in endocrinology and diabetes. Clinical research is strong and we strive to expand basic research, especially in the areas of diabetes and obesity. The division’s private practice is comprised of a team of excellent clinicians who specialize in a range of endocrinologic disorders.

The division provides quality public services at the LAC+USC Medical Center, the Roybal Comprehensive Health Center and the Hudson Comprehensive Health Center to those patients who have diabetes or other endocrine issues, but lack adequate health insurance to take care of their medical needs.
