Endocrinology (MBBS India)

by Jeremy Brown, PhD, Carlo Raj, MD, Charles Vega, MD u.a.
Endocrinology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the study, diagnosis, and management of conditions that affect the endocrine glands of the human body. These conditions include the very common diabetes mellitus and thyroid disorders, disorders of the pituitary gland and hypothalamus, disorders of the adrenal glands, bone density disorders related to parathyroid dysfunction, and reproductive disorders related to endocrine function. For optimal understanding, the student needs to be familiar with the entirety of endocrine physiology, including the regulatory mechanism of hormones. Endocrine pathologies have a very distinctive presentation, as the abundance or absence of endocrine secretions has immediate and recognizable effects on the physiology and, ultimately, the clinical presentation of the individual. The general physician should have clarity on the typical presentation of common endocrine abnormalities and the accompanying clinical manifestations. Furthermore, owing to the intricate nature of the management of these conditions, the clinician must be able to redirect care to the appropriate subspecialist to ensure the best outcomes.

Very good resource.
By Vincent B. on 29. October 2022 for Pituitary and Hypothalamic Disorders

Lecturio displays a concise presentation of the most relevant aspects of a wide variety of subjects. Videos contain images for illustration and better understanding as well as quiz questions. Lectures are high-yield and seldom need supplementation of information. Fit for USMLE and PLAB, and offers good value for money - there’s so much to like. There’s however, the lack of clarity of images on a paused screen and only about 20% of the content is currently free.
