The Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at the University of Illinois at Chicago offers 1-3 fellowship positions each year for dedicated physicians interested in obtaining exceptional training in endocrinology. Fellows can choose to focus on a Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism pathway through a two year training track. Alternatively, candidates targeting a career in academic medicine can apply for a combined 3 year program in Clinical and Research Endocrinology and Metabolism, supported in part by a training grant from the National Institutes of Health.
Our mission is to provide outstanding training in the field of adult endocrinology to highly qualified physicians with interest in both clinical and academic careers. The goal of the program is to provide a comprehensive, academically-based training and experience that would give opportunities to the fellows for developing the knowledge, interpersonal skills, professional attitudes, and practical competence required to function as consultants in the field of endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism. Our fellows have a variety of research opportunities for in-depth training in clinical, translational or basic research in various areas of endocrinology and metabolism.
