Message from the Chief

Fredric Kraemer, MD Professor of Medicine, Division Chief of Endocrinology, Gerontology, and Metabolism

Welcome to the Division of Endocrinology, Gerontology and Metabolism website. As a leading center for research, clinical studies, consultation, and treatment, our faculty is dedicated to providing patients with the latest therapies in the care and management of complex endocrine diseases and diabetes. The Division has a longstanding tradition of excellence in research, highlighted by major discoveries in the areas of insulin resistance and diabetes.  Research efforts are supported by government and private funding and include diverse areas such as hormone action, various aspects of diabetes, obesity, growth disorders, calcium metabolism, pituitary disorders, aging and the genetics of endocrine disease.

A wide diversity of patients is treated at weekly clinics throughout three different locations, Stanford Hospital, VA Palo Alto Health Care System and Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.  Several specialty clinics are available, including a Pituitary Center that focuses on pituitary and hypothalamic disorders.

The division currently consists of 14 full time faculty, three emeritus faculty, and two instructors. Our clinical fellowship program provides trainees with two to three years of advanced training in the field of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism. The program places a major emphasis on training academic endocrinologists interested in basic and/or clinical research, and also suits the needs for trainees who plan to become private practitioners or clinician educators.  The division’s mentor-trainee program offers in-depth guidance throughout all aspects of fellowship training and support through our NIH funded endocrinology training grant.

We invite you to explore our website and contact us for opportunities for training and research collaborations.
