The goal of the fellowship program is to provide a comprehensive educational experience in Pediatric Endocrinology by offering an organized, progressive setting with increasing patient care responsibilities. This takes place over a three-year period in an environment that has a diverse patient population and a teaching staff with professional ability, enthusiasm, and a commitment to teaching.

Mission Statement

The mission of our program is to provide a comprehensive educational experience for future leaders in pediatric endocrinology. Our fellowship provides flexibility within the breadth of training opportunities which can lead to successful careers in academics, research, or clinically focused care.

Program Aims

The goal of the fellowship program is to provide a comprehensive educational experience in Pediatric Endocrinology, by providing an organized, progressive educational experience with increasing patient care responsibilities over a three-year period in a setting which has a diverse patient population and a teaching staff with professional ability, enthusiasm and a commitment to teaching. Clinical Training Our fellowship focuses on providing trainees with the skill set needed to function as independent pediatric endocrinologists with an emphasis on life-long learning and an ability to synthesize information. Through the combined exposure to patients in our outpatient clinics, consults performed in the hospital, and experiences at our numerous diabetes camps, our fellows are exposed to the entire range of endocrine disorders over their 3 years of training. Research Training Our program provides opportunities for fellows to experience both laboratory research and clinical research depending on interest under well-funded faculty studying a range of topics related to endocrinology. In addition, fellows are invited to participate in the Training and Research Academy for Clinical and Translation Science (TRACTS) program for fellows and early career faculty. Educator Training Our curriculum prepares fellows to be teachers with regular practice and feedback from didactic presentations in our core lectures series, residence academic sessions and medical school classes, to on-service instruction with practical and skills oriented guidance under the supervision of our faculty educators.
