The National Institute for Diabetes Endocrinology and Genetics began its mission in July, 2005 with the following goals:

To prepare qualified health care providers in Diabetes care and related subjects.
To provide teaching, research & service in the fields of diabetes, endocrinology and genetics.

Objectives of NIDEG are:

To graduate qualified health care professionals in diabetes care, including physicians, nurses and other related health sciences.
