The Harbor-UCLA Medical Center is a Los Angeles County facility with over 300 active beds. There is an active Endocrine consult service with the opportunity to see and learn to diagnose and manage all categories of endocrine disease. The divisions provide services through ambulatory Diabetes, Endocrine, Thyroid, Pituitary, and Andrology clinics. The facility provides state of the art diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities. It is one of the major teaching hospitals of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
The volume of patients seen, the broad spectrum of pathology and the quality of the teaching staff provide a unique opportunity for first hand exposure to both common endocrine disorders, as well as rare entities not commonly seen in other settings.
A Clinical Research Center is available for clinical research in older children and adults. A Perinatal Clinical Research Center for research in mothers and infants also is available.
