Cosyntropin stimulation testing is used to determine if patients have functioning adrenal glands and if they require stress dose steroids during a physiologic challenge. However, much of the data regarding the performance of cosyntropin stimulation testing is derived from analytic methods no longer in use or not based on clinical outcomes.
This is a clinical research project aimed at defining the appropriate criteria for determining adrenal sufficiency using clinical outcome data.
A student working on this project would participate in all aspects of clinical research from defining research questions, data entry, data analysis, and drafting a scientific manuscript. Students with an interest in clinical research, pediatrics, internal medicine, and/or endocrinology are encouraged to apply.
