The purpose of the Joint Program is to enhance the research, education, and medical care in diabetes, endocrinology, and metabolism by aligning both institutions, so as to promote collaboration, facilitate sharing of resources, and avoid duplication of efforts. The recognized research expertise in endocrinology and clinical research at Pennington Biomedical has been aligned with the medical care provision and endocrinology fellowship education and training efforts at LSUHSC, thus creating a seamless Joint Program. The The faculty of the Joint Program are appointed to either or both institutions.
