About Endotext
Endotext.org provides an online endocrine source for physicians. Endotext is a complete, authoritative, frequently updated, downloadable source of information on all aspects of clinical endocrinology. It is a free 3,000,000-word textbook of endocrinology edited by 12 renowned editors, and written by 400 experts from around the world. Our audience consists of endocrinologists, fellows and residents, but also a much larger group of internists, obstetricians, and general practitioners who care for many patients with endocrine problems. The advantages of our approach are that we can produce a site that is effectively a huge textbook at a modest cost, illustrate it profusely, update it continuously, and have it available around-the-clock, without charging the reader for use.
