The Endocrine Fellowship Training Program offers opportunities for training in both the clinical and research aspects of endocrinology and metabolism. The scope and structure of the clinical program is designed to fulfill both the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) training requirements. Fellows can choose to focus on training in Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism 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. Trainees completing this program also will be board eligible in Endocrinology and Metabolism, and have a variety of opportunities for in-depth training in clinical, translational or basic research, with a special emphasis on diabetes, nutrition and obesity.
Our trainees have full exposure to all aspects of endocrinology. The goal of the program is to provide 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.
