Joint Program on Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism
The Joint Program on Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism is a single academic program across two distinct campuses of the LSU System. Specifically, the program represents a collaborative effort between the Pennington Biomedical Research Center (PBRC) in Baton Rouge and LSU Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in New Orleans. The purpose of such a program is to enhance the research, education and medical care in diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism by aligning both institutions, so as to promote collaboration, facilitate sharing of resources, and avoiding duplication of efforts. The recognized research expertise in endocrinology and clinical research at PBRC has been aligned with the medical care provision and endocrinology fellowship education and training efforts existing at LSUHSC, thus creating a seamless Program on Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism.
The program is led by William Cefalu, MD, who is jointly appointed to the faculty at both institutions and whose time allocation is divided between the two institutions at approximately 50% effort at each. The faculty of the joint endocrinology program are appointed to either or both institutions.
