The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists-Philippine Chapter (AACE-PC) is a professional organization of physicians specializing in the art and practice of endocrinology.

The AACE-Philippine Chapter was established in 2006, as the third international chapter of AACE and the FIRST in Southeast Asia.

Members of AACE-Philippine Chapter devote a significant part of their career to the evaluation, treatment and management of patients with endocrine diseases.  They are recognized clinicians, educators, writers and researchers, many of whom are affiliated with medical schools and universities; and community leaders who are pillars of endocrinology in their home turf.
The endocrine system is made up of glands throughout the body which regulate the function, growth and development of tissues and organs by releasing chemicals called hormones directly into the bloodstream.  Endocrine disorders develop when a malfunctioning gland secretes either too much or too little of a hormone due to illness, surgical removal or natural causes.
               
Clinical endocrinologists are physicians with special education, training and expertise in the complex disorders of the endocrine system.  These physicians devote their clinical practices to providing the highest standard of diagnosis and care to patients with endocrine disease, including obesity, diabetes, thyroid disease, reproductive disorders, osteoporosis, hypertension, cholesterol and lipid abnormalities, as well as pituitary, parathyroid and adrenal conditions.
