The Second Department of Medicine of Semmelweis University has a long tradition of providing outstanding care for patients with endocrine disorders in Hungary. The Endocrine Division of our clinic is one of the oldest clinical endocrinology teams of the Hungarian healthcare system. Not only is our team at the forefront of endocrine patient care, but it is also active in the fields of clinical research, innovation and development. Along with patient care and research, a third mission of the Endocrine Division is graduate and postgraduate education in clinical endocrinology. Our Clinic is the largest training centre for clinical endocrinology in Hungary.
The Endocrine Division deals with the diagnosis and management of all fields of endocrine disorders with a special focus on disorders of the adrenals and pituitary. We have a great expertise in the management of congenital adrenal hyperplasia, pituitary neoplasias, adrenal tumours, Cushing’s syndrome and neuroendocrine tumours. Our Endocrine Genetics Laboratory is a leading laboratory in endocrine genetics in Hungary performing genetic tests in familial endocrine neoplasms (MEN1, MEN2, pheochromocytoma-paraganglioma syndromes, von-Hippel-Lindau syndrome). Owing to the optimal cooperation between endocrinologists, clinical geneticists, specialists of laboratory medicine and molecular genetics diagnostics in our department we are able to provide a patient centered approach, serving the best interests of our patients.
Our Clinic is the home of two prestigious research groups: the Molecular Medicine Research Group and “Lendület”, which is the Hereditary Endocrine Tumours Research Group of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and Semmelweis University. Both of these research groups are highly active in the fields of clinical research and training PhD students.
Our department has a long tradition of international collaboration as it has been a member of several ESE-organized and other endocrine workgroups. On our initiative, Semmelweis University joined the European Reference Network on rare endocrine conditions in 2016.
