This module first covers the essential physiology of the pancreas, pituitary and thyroid gland, before going into the details of the drugs involved in the endocrine system. The next section involves looking at some of the most important investigations and tests including thyroid function tests and capillary blood glucose. We then go through the endocrine conditions, such as complications arising from diabetes and pathology associated with the adrenal gland.
