Becoming an outstanding endocrinologist is more than mastering medical knowledge. It is important to hone your skills in communication with patients, families and other care givers. It is essential to learn the key components of professionalism as well as learn how to expedite your patients through an increasingly difficult medical beaucracy. It is also important to be able assess your own practice skills and develop ways to continually improve your delivery of health care. To aid in these critical objectives, you will be continually evaluated in the six core competencies outlined by the ACGME. The curriculum provides ample opportunity to master the competencies.
