Our mission is to advance excellence in patient care, research, and education by training endocrinologists who will care for multicultural and underserved patients without bias.
Program Goals and Objective:
This subspecialty training program in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism is designed to provide advanced training and experience at a level for the trainee to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and experience required for all the competencies needed by a consultant in this field. This program is designed to fulfill the needs of trainees who anticipate careers in the clinical practice of this specialty, those who expect to function as clinician-educators, and those who intend to pursue a career in clinical research. The teaching environment and educational experiences of trainees will equip them to become strong clinicians, educators, and investigators.
Applicants must have completed an ACGME accredited program in Internal Medicine. Starting in summer 2023 we will use the Electronic Residency Application service (ERAS) and the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). The program will accept one (1) fellow each year to make a total of two (2).
The program selection committee includes a diverse faculty from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. We will ensure our fellows represent our patients in the community we serve regardless of race, country of origin, sexual orientation, and identification. Our fellows will have a great chance of dealing with highly complex medical and social aspects of patient care.
Curriculum and Didactics:
Fellows will focus on training in clinical endocrinology with the goal of developing the skills and knowledge required to skillfully manage patients with a variety of endocrine disorders. As leader of the inpatient endocrine consult service, fellows take responsibility for managing patients with close supervision from a faculty attending endocrinologist. Fellows also participate in continuity clinics. The clinic is designed to run as the fellow’s own private practice under close supervision by faculty attending endocrinologists.
Training includes enhanced educational experiences in diabetes technology, personalized hands-on instruction in thyroid ultrasound and fine-needle biopsy in interventional radiology clinic, pediatric endocrinology rotation and rotation in maternal fetal medicine clinic.
The didactic portion of the program includes endocrine conferences, journal clubs, and multidisciplinary conferences that include radiology, neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, and diabetes education.
All fellows will have protected research time and fellows will have opportunities to attend and present research at regional and national endocrine conferences.
