Research Activities:

For the last 5 years the teaching staff research activities (in cooperation with the National Cancer Institute in the USA) have focused on the epidemiological analysis of the population suffered from the Chernobyl disaster, the creation and analysis of the register of patients with diabetes and clinical studies of hypogonadism. The achievements of the teaching staff work are proved by international favorable opinion concerning the papers which have been published since 2008.

Clinical Work

Over the last 20 years the clinic of the Institute of Endocrinology headed by Academician M. D. Tron’ko has developed a complete course of diagnosis and treatment of thyroid cancer, which includes modern cytological methods of diagnosis, surgical and radiological treatment. The radiological treatment is performed in the specialized unit, which was founded in 2007. Since the Chernobyl disaster it was gained a great clinical experience (there were diagnosed and treated more than 3000 patients with the thyroid gland tumors); the experience is of great value for training doctors in Ukraine and for the world’s general medicine.

The patients consult the teaching staff in the clinic of SI “V. P. Komisarenko Institute of Endocrinology and Metabolism” of NAMS of Ukraine; the teaching staff carries out clinical rounds in the day hospital. In 2008-2012 9921 patients consulted the teaching staff at the out-patient departments and in the day hospital, including 183 patients in out of the department’s clinical base.
