Research/Clinical Training

Our program utilizes 12-month-long blocks following the academic year SITE 1 = UF Health Shands Hospital.

For fellows seeking to pursue a career as a “clinician-educator” any months marked as research may be converted to clinic months once the requirements for scholarly activity have been met and sign off has been obtained from the SOC. Vacation can be taken within any non-restricted block with prior approval from the program director.

Basic and translational/clinical research opportunities exist from which fellows may choose typically during the first few research months of their fellowship. Collaborations for research often occur within the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology but also with disciplines outside our division such as Adult Endocrinology, Reproductive Endocrinology, Pathology/Immunology, and General Pediatrics.
