The main objective of the Division’s ACGME-accredited dual fellowship programs is to prepare talented physicians with a strong interest in clinical endocrinology or clinical-research in academic endocrinology. The clinical program is two years and offers M.D. fellows extensive clinical training to prepare for board certification and clinical leadership in academic endocrinology. The clinical-research program is three years and is supported by two National Institution of Health training grants. Both M.D. and Ph.D. fellows receive training in laboratory research and in the basic sciences under the mentorship of individual faculty members in a laboratory setting.
In addition to mentoring fellows, Division faculty are very active in teaching medical students and residents, as well as in continuing medical education and education for the lay public, particularly in the area of diabetes.
