Employment Prospects


There are about 756,800 physicians working in the United States. Only a small number specialize in endocrinology. Endocrinologists work in hospitals, managed-care offices, colleges and universities, and research laboratories. Some are self-employed in their own or group practices. Positions are also available in government agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and the Food and Drug Administration. Pharmaceutical and biotech companies hire physicians to research and develop new drugs, instruments, and procedures.
