Mark Molitch, MD
Mark Molitch, M.D. is Professor Emeritus in the Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Molecular Medicine at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He has participated in clinical research for many years, focusing on the pathogenesis of pituitary tumors and their treatment. He has also had a long-standing interest in the interaction between pituitary tumors and pregnancy. He has been involved in most of the initial trials of therapeutic agents for pituitary tumors, including those using bromocriptine, mesulergine, quinagolide, cabergoline, octreotide, octreotide-LAR, oral octreotide, lanreotide and mifepristone. He was also PI of the Northwestern University Center of The Testosterone Trials. Dr. Molitch has been a member of the committees that wrote many current clinical guidelines used by endocrinologists, including those for Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency, Prolactinomas, Acromegaly, Pituitary Incidentalomas, Diabetes (Standards of Care), and Diabetic Nephropathy. In addition to editing eight books and journal volumes, Dr. Molitch has authored or coauthored more than 500 original papers, review articles, book chapters, case reports and other publications. In 1997, Dr. Molitch was the recipient of the “Outstanding Physician Educator in the Field of Diabetes Award” by the American Diabetes Association and in 2013 was the recipient of the “Distinguished Educator Award” of The Endocrine Society and was President of the Pituitary Society in 2012-2013.
OVERALL LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of each of these activities, learners will be able to:
- Discuss the latest scientific and clinical discoveries in the field of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism
- Apply new found knowledge to the diagnosis and management of patients with disorders of endocrinology, diabetes or metabolism for improved patient outcomes
- Assess the potential applications of emerging scientific advances that affect the practice of endocrinology.
MAINTENANCE OF CERTIFICATION
Successful completion of this CME activity enables the participant to earn up to 0.75 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC points.
Your participation information will be shared with the ACCME, which will in turn report your points to ABIM. Successful completion of a course examination is required to earn ABIM MOC points.
