PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Welcome to the University of Illinois Endocrinology Fellowship Program. Our program offers opportunities for training in both the clinical and research aspects of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism. The scope and structure of the clinical program is designed to fulfill both the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education and the American Board of Internal Medicine training requirements while offering broad clinical and research opportunities. Fellows can choose to focus on training in the Clinical program through a two-year training track. The two-year program is designed to meet the needs of trainees who anticipate their future activities to be in clinical practice and those who expect to function as clinician-educators. Alternatively, candidates targeting a career in academic medicine can apply for a combined 3-year program in the Clinical and Research Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism track. Trainees completing this program also will have a variety of opportunities for in-depth training in clinical, translational or basic research. The teaching environment in our program, combined with broad educational experiences, will result in our trainees becoming strong clinicians, educators, and investigators.

The goal of the program is to provide comprehensive, academically based training and experience that would give fellows the opportunities to developing interpersonal skills, professional attitudes, and practical competencies required to function as consultants in the field of endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism. Our extensive inpatient and outpatient clinical activities with diverse patient populations are based at the UI Health, Jessie Brown VA Medical Center, and Advocate Christ Medical Center. Our patients reflect the full diversity of Chicago, and a fundamental aspect of UI Health’s mission to address the needs of diverse populations and to promote health equity.

UIC is Chicago’s largest university and one of America’s premier urban research universities. Nationally recognized for its outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion, UIC is a unique institution that is deeply invested in all communities in Chicago, across the nation, and around the globe.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
