Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes

The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology at Johns Hopkins was established by Dr. Lawson Wilkins, a pioneer in the field of pediatric endocrinology, whose trainees went on to establish divisions of pediatric endocrinology throughout the globe. The world’s first pediatric endocrine clinic was founded at the Harriett Lane Home, now the Harriet Lane clinic, where our division is proud to continue to see patients. Dr. Wilkins was known for being a meticulous researcher, an warm clinician and dedicated teacher of medical students, residents and fellows.

In keeping with those traditions, the current Division of Pediatric Endocrinology is comprised of faculty engaged in high quality research, providing excellent clinical care and committed to the teaching the next generation of physicians.
