Program Information

More than ever, the practice of medicine today involves the understanding of each patient as a unique individual. We should aim for patient-centered care, with a focus on patient needs and priorities. 

Women with endocrine disorders may experience symptoms or complaints which are different from those of men, and which may vary depending on age and life stage (e.g. puberty, pregnancy, post-partum). Adequate thyroid hormone production is essential for the development of the fetus and infant. Thyroid hormone remains important throughout the lifespan for physical growth, emotional wellbeing, intellectual development, and maintenance of metabolic and reproductive health. Adequate iodine nutrition is needed in order to maintain thyroid hormone production.  Thyroid autoimmunity may lead to goiter, hypothyroidism, or hyperthyroidism.  Thyroid dysfunction or autoimmunity in pregnancy may be associated with multiple obstetric complications. Maternal thyroid iodine deficiency and/or thyroid hypofunction have been linked to child developmental disorders including intellectual deficits, attention hyperactive deficit disorder, and autism spectrum disorders. Finally, thyroid nodules are common, especially among women, and thyroid cancer is the cancer with the most rapidly rising incidence in women.
