Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
Physicians in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism, part of the Department of Medicine at NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine, provide high-quality patient care and conduct groundbreaking research in this field, making our educational programs an exceptional learning experience for trainees.
Our health providers specialize in diagnosing and treating diabetes and other endocrine conditions. Our faculty’s approach to diabetes inpatient care has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island. The hospital is also an insulin pump–friendly facility.
Led by Stanislaw Klek, MD, division chief, our physicians manage endocrine disorders based on a foundation of highly specialized knowledge and the subsequent pursuit of a correct diagnosis through the logical analysis of history, focus on physical findings, and interpretation of laboratory data. Successful management of the diagnosed disorder requires the ability to empower patients with a sufficient understanding of the disease to follow management plans. The endocrinologist must be a scholar, diagnostician, and educator.
Our team of physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, diabetes educators, medical assistants, and administrative staff contribute to the education of our medical students, residents, and fellows. Research is another integral part of our division, with trainees learning from faculty who regularly publish their findings in peer-reviewed journals.
Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism Education
Our division faculty provide comprehensive training to medical students, residents, and fellows that prepares them for careers in academia, research, and the clinic. We also offer continuing medical education in endocrinology to healthcare providers who wish to learn more about the subspecialty.
Medical Student Education
NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine has an MD curriculum that features a five-week preclerkship course on the endocrine–reproductive system that focuses on diabetes and reproductive issues. Our faculty also participate in the Internal Medicine Clerkship.
An endocrinology elective is available through the Internal Medicine Residency for trainees interested in the field. We offer a two-week rotation to our internal medicine residents and a four-week rotation to visiting residents from external training programs. Visiting residents must complete an in-elective request form, review our in-elective and in-rotation policy, and contact the appropriate NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine director to request permission to take the elective.
These rotations facilitate and enhance the study of metabolic diseases and increase competency in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes, including the role of a multidisciplinary team approach to care. This encompasses learning lifestyle modification and medication options, as well as exposure to the latest technology available in the treatment and management of diabetes.
Trainees from the Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency at also rotate with our faculty.
NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine offers an Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism Fellowship. Our two-year training program provides outstanding subspecialty clinical experience, comprehensive education, and opportunities to collaborate in research under the mentorship of our accomplished faculty. The curriculum is a comprehensive integration of didactic and practical teaching, literature review, and close interaction with faculty in all clinical and research activities.
Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism Research
Physician–scientists at NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine’s Diabetes and Obesity Research Center are investigating the molecular mechanisms and environmental and genetic factors affecting the development of type 1 and type 2 diabetes, with the goal of advancing treatment. Our researchers are also evaluating cardiovascular risk in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, thyroid hormone metabolism in the critically ill, bariatric surgery outcomes, and the mechanisms underlying obesity and its complications, among other topics.
Research is supported by funding from the American Heart Association and the National Institutes of Health, among others. Learn more about diabetes, endocrinology, and obesity research at NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine.
Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism Clinical Services
Inpatient endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism disorder management is offered at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island. Conditions we treat include type 1 and type 2 diabetes; pituitary, thyroid, and adrenal disorders; osteoporosis; osteopenia; Paget’s disease of bone; hypercalcemia hypocalcemia; obesity; metabolic syndrome; and lipid disorders.
Our team also offers high-quality ambulatory diabetes care, weight management, and endocrinology care at several convenient locations, including NYU Langone Diabetes and Endocrinology Associates—Mineola, NYU Langone Endocrinology Associates—Rockville Centre, and NYU Langone Medical Associates—Bellport.
