This section consists of 9 hours of lecture covering the latest developments in veterinary endocrinology. Although heavily weighted towards small animal diseases, we always feature a lecture by Dr. Gabi Landolt on the Metabolic syndrome in horses which serves as a state-of-the-art review of a condition that underlies a variety of problems (obesity, diabetes mellitus) in both humans and small animals. Otherwise the course covers recent advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders involving the pituitary, thyroid, and adrenal glands as well as the endocrine portion of the pancreas. Dr. Craig Webb is the module coordinator.
