Week 6: Concepts of Endocrine Disorders
Endocrine disorders are complex matters, and there is not always a one-size-fits-all treatment.

An understanding of these complications is essential to supporting these individual treatment plans.
This week, you examine alterations in the endocrine system and the resultant disease processes. You also consider patient characteristics, including racial and ethnic variables, and the impact they have on altered physiology.
