After the university was established (1942), Russian and Mongolian internists taught Endocrinology. Professor Ts. Dolgormaa was the first specialized endocrinologist at the university. Our department was created in 1991. Professor J. Suvd was the first head of the department and had been worked for over 20 years. She took the initiative to develop a post-graduate curriculum for endocrinology; her students were the first generation of endocrinologists nationwide. Since that time, the department provides a course for endocrinologists throughout the country. Professor J. Suvd also conducted the first national study on the prevalence of diabetes.
Professor Kh. Altaisaikhan was the first faculty of the department to become member of the Academy of Mongolian Medical Sciences. He was instrumental in developing diabetes management in Mongolia. He started the first diabetes center in Ulaanbaatar, which served as a model for diabetes centers in whole country. He supervised 10 PhD students in the field of prevalence, risk factors and complications of diabetes.
