"The purpose of this textbook is to provide a comprehensive introduction to diseases of the endocrine system. Rather than providing an overwhelming amount of endocrine content, this textbook will serve as a simplified bridge between courses in basic endocrine physiology and the care of patients in the hospital and outpatient settings with endocrine disorders. The approach will appeal to understanding rather than memorization. With the changes in many medical school curriculums to a clinically-based curriculum, this book will provide a cutting edge approach to endocrine pathophysiology"--Provided by publisher.
