Academic Half Day

Endocrinology academic half day (AHD) occurs on Friday mornings between 8:00 and 11:00 am most weeks of the year. The AHD curriculum is intended to cover core endocrine topics as well as more specialized endocrine topics.


8:00 – 9:00 am: The first hour is open to medical students, residents, fellows and staff. There is a rotating schedule of events, which may include staff presentations, physical exam sessions, case presentations, and journal clubs.

9:00 – 10:00 am: The second hour is intended for medical residents/students, who are currently on their endocrinology rotation and often includes basic/general endocrine topics.

10:00 – 11:00 am: The last hour is intended exclusively for endocrinology fellows, when specialized endocrine endocrine topics are covered in more detail.
