A Message from the Chief

Jill P. Crandall, M.D.

Since its inception in 1965, the Division of Endocrinology at Montefiore Einstein has evolved into one of the largest and most well-respected in the New York metropolitan area. Our outstanding faculty and associates are committed to excellence in patient care, research and education.

  • Central to our mission is to provide high quality, patient-centered care for the full spectrum of endocrine disorders, including those affecting the pituitary, adrenal and thyroid systems, as well as metabolic bone disease, diabetes, obesity, lipid disorders and transgender care. We provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to each patient's treatment, with a focus on patient education and empowerment.
  • The Division of Endocrinology maintains robust basic and clinical research programs in diabetes, metabolism, obesity and aging. The division is home to three NIH-supported research centers, the Einstein-Sinai Diabetes Research Center, the NY Regional Center for Diabetes Translation Research and the Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in aging research. Our research faculty have contributed to many important discoveries and landmark trials in the fields of diabetes and aging and have achieved national and international recognition.
  • Our faculty and clinicians are devoted to training the next generation of physicians through our teaching of medical students, residents and fellows. Our competitive endocrinology fellowship program provides the foundation for a successful career as a clinician, researcher or healthcare policy maker.

Fundamental to our mission is an appreciation of the social determinants of health and a commitment to serve those who are marginalized or disadvantaged. We are proud to serve the diverse and culturally rich community in the Bronx and to carry on the traditions and social mission of Montefiore Einstein.
