The Department of Endocrine and Metabolism specializes in addressing metabolic abnormalities and endocrine hormone-related diseases. Our primary areas of focus include diabetes, thyroid disorders, pituitary diseases, adrenal diseases, parathyroid and bone metabolic disorders, gonadal disorders, lipid metabolic disorders, obesity, and various nutritional issues. We provide a comprehensive range of services, such as diabetes classes, nutrition counseling, and a dedicated diabetes/metabolic ward for specialized care.

Within our department, we operate specialized clinics for diabetes, thyroid disorders, adrenal diseases, and a pituitary gland center, ensuring expert care for our patients. Our state-of-the-art endocrine laboratory allows for efficient one-stop testing, including diabetes complication tests, hormonal stimulation/suppression tests, and thyroid ultrasound and fine needle examinations.

Established in 1978, the Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism at Seoul National University Hospital has a rich history, with the creation of a dedicated ward within the Department of Internal Medicine, the launch of the Diabetes, Thyroid, and Endocrine Center in 2006, and the opening of independent Thyroid and Pituitary Centers in 2011 and 2015, respectively. At the Department of Clinical Genomic Medicine, we specialize in the treatment of hereditary diabetes, familial hyperlipidemia, and hereditary endocrine disorders.

Our mission is to foster human resources development, academic advancements, and improved public health by providing world-class education, research, and treatment in the field of endocrine metabolism. Our dedicated team of medical professionals is committed to this vision. The department is organized into diabetes, thyroid, endocrine, and bone metabolic disease subfields, with 10 specialized professors and clinical instructors providing expert care. We continuously strive to enhance patient satisfaction and treatment processes through regular quarterly meetings.
