This will be a homecoming of sorts for Dr. William H. Young, Jr. He received his MD degree in 1978 from Michigan State University and trained in internal medicine at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan, before receiving addItional training in endocrinology and metabolism at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. He has been a member of the staff at Mayo Clinic since 1984 and is currently Professor of Medicine in the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Vice-Chair of the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, Metabolism, and Nutrition.
Dr. Young is a fitting lecturer for this event (which is run by the fellows in the Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes), since he has been the recipient of multiple education awards, including the Mayo Fellows Association Teacher of the Year Award in Internal Medicine and the Mayo School of Continuing Medical Education Outstanding Faculty Member Award. In 2003, Dr. Young received the Distinguished Mayo Clinician Award (a distinction given to no more than four Mayo Clinic physicians annually). In 2004, he received the Mayo Clinic "Endocrinology Teacher of the Year Award" from the endocrinology fellows. In 2008, he received the H. Jack Baskin, MD, Endocrine Teaching Award from the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists in recognition of his profound impact in teaching fellows-in-training.
Dr. Young’s clinical research focuses on primary aldosteronism and pheochromocytoma. He has published over 210 articles on endocrine hypertension and adrenal and pituitary disorders. In 2006, Dr. Young received “Distinction in Clinical Endocrinology Award” from the American College of Endocrinology. He is a member of The Endocrine Society, American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, American Society of Hypertension, and Council of Science Editors. Dr. Young also serves as senior editor for Clinical Endocrinology and as editor-in-chief of the Mayo Clinic Endocrinology Update Newsletter. Dr. Young has presented at over 250 national and international meetings and he has been an invited visiting professor for more than 80 medical institutions.

Mrs. Esther Floyd and her family in memory of
her husband, Dr. John C. Floyd, Jr.,
late Professor Emeritus of Internal Medicine in the
Division of Endocrinology & Metabolism and
co-founder/former Associate Director of the
