Endocrinology (Diabetes and Metabolism)
The Endocrinology Division in the Department of Medicine at MetroHealth Medical Center is heavily involved in teaching endocrinology and general internal medicine to medical students, interns and residents at MetroHealth Medical Center. All three members of the division spend time as attending physicians on the general medical wards at MetroHealth Medical Center, teaching general internal medicine to junior clerks, acting interns, interns, and residents. All three members of the division are also actively involved in leading small group discussions during the endocrinology teaching for the first and second year medical students at Case Western Reserve University. In addition, all three members of the division provide lectures on topics of the field of endocrinology and metabolism for students, house officers and colleagues (see below). Finally, all three members of the division attend in the diabetes consultation clinic and general endocrinology clinic, which are teaching clinics for house officers and medical students learning about the management of endocrine diseases.
Dr. Murphy is co-chairman of the endocrinology teaching committee for the first and second year medical students at Case Western Reserve University. He lectures to the students on topics such as Diabetic Ketoacidosis, Disorders of Calcium Metabolism, Male Hypogonadism, and The Normal Physiology of the Pituitary Gland.
