Our fellowship program has a long and distinguished history of clinical, research, and educational excellence. Tailored to the specific talents and interests of each trainee, this program excels in training individuals for successful careers in academic and clinical pediatric endocrinology. Our three-year training program strives to attract superb candidates with a high interest in academic medicine. The program is structured to include clinical and research training (as per the requirements spelled out by the ACGME).
The goal of the training program is to provide fellows with instruction and evaluation in competencies that include: Patient care, medical knowledge, professionalism, system-based practice, practice-based learning and improvement and interpersonal and communication skills. Fellows will learn the fundamentals of clinical diagnosis and management of problems related to pediatric endocrinology.
Fellows are expected to participate in assigned clinical rotations; attend and present at didactic sessions designed to provide a breadth of knowledge in clinical pediatric endocrinology, and in the physiological principles and basis of diagnosis and management; receive instruction on how to undertake research and participate in significant research that will translate into reporting of findings at scientific meetings and in peer reviewed journals and the submission of grant applications.
