The main objective of the Division’s ACGME-accredited fellowship program is to prepare talented physicians and Ph.D. scientists with a strong interest in research in full-time careers in academic endocrinology. M.D. fellows receive clinical training to prepare them for board certification. The program has a strong research focus 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 the area of diabetes.
