The Institute for Diabetes, Obesity, and Cardiovascular Disease (iDOC) provides integrated educational information about the related conditions of diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. iDOC works to accomplish this through a combination of high quality live programming and a dynamic, easy-to-use website that utilizes the latest in web technology. iDOC.org is designed to help medical professionals stay on top of current events, provide relevant tools for use in their practices, and relay information and opinions from top thought leaders through editorials and multi-media programming.

We encourage and welcome your feedback. New features and content will be implemented throughout 2010 and beyond. If you have ideas for future content or features, or if you feel that a part of the website is not working properly, please contact us at info@iDOC.org.


iDOC is a resource for healthcare providers treating patients affected by the related conditions of diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. This includes primary care physicians, endocrinologists, diabetologists, cardiologists, certified diabetes educators, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, endocrine fellows in training, and others.


The costs of producing iDOC.org are currently supported by educational grants from multiple pharmaceutical companies. It is the purpose of iDOC to provide an independent, unbiased source of high quality medical education and information. To this end, the organization intends to secure additional funding in the future through corporate, foundation, and government assistance.
