  1. Disorders of the Hypothalamus and Pituitary
    This module provides a solid foundation by introducing the functions of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. Common disorders such as hypopituitarism, hyperpituitarism, and pituitary tumors are explored, accompanied by an in-depth look into diagnostic approaches like hormonal assays and imaging techniques. Treatment strategies, including medication management and surgical interventions, are thoroughly examined to equip learners with comprehensive knowledge.
  2. Disorders of the thyroid  

    Delve into the anatomy and physiology of the thyroid gland, understanding the production of crucial hormones—T3, T4, and calcitonin. This module addresses prevalent thyroid disorders like hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and thyroiditis. Diagnostic procedures, such as thyroid function tests and ultrasound, are covered, along with diverse treatment modalities ranging from medication usage to radioactive iodine therapy and surgical options.

  3. Disorders of the adrenals
    This module focuses on common disorders like Cushing’s syndrome, Addison’s disease, and adrenal tumors. Diagnostic tools, including cortisol level assessments and imaging studies, are elucidated, along with management strategies such as steroid replacement therapy and surgical interventions.
  4. Disorders of parathyroids, calcium and bone  
    This module addresses disorders like hyperparathyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, and osteoporosis. Diagnostic approaches, including serum calcium and PTH level assessments, as well as dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scans, are explored. Medical and surgical interventions for effective management are discussed in detail.
  5. Reproductive Endocrinology 
    This module explores disorders like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), infertility, and menstrual disorders. Diagnostic tools, including hormonal assays and imaging studies, are covered, along with treatment approaches such as assisted reproductive technologies (ART) and hormone replacement therapy.
  6. Endocrine-related cancer

    Enter the realm of endocrine-related cancers, focusing on thyroid cancer, adrenal cancer, and pituitary tumors. This module elaborates on diagnostic techniques like biopsy procedures and imaging studies such as PET scans. A multidisciplinary approach to management, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, is explored, providing a holistic understanding of dealing with endocrine-related cancers.
