The mission of the NYU Division of Endocrinology encompasses both basic and clinical research, the training of the next generations of Endocrine fellows, and the delivery of clinical care to patients at the three main teaching hospitals of NYU School of Medicine, with an emphasis on the care of underserved populations at the Endocrine and Diabetes clinics at Bellevue Hospital and the VA Medical Center New York.

The division's Fellowship Training Program is one of the most sought after in the New York region. Its graduates have gone on to highly successful careers in academia, the pharmaceutical industry, and clinical practice.
