Education & Training

Endocrinology and Diabetes Fellowship Program

The Endocrinology and Diabetes fellowship program at Children's Hospital at Montefiore is a full-time, three-year program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Our faculty, in partnership with the University Hospital of Albert Einstein College of Medicine, provides training through hands-on clinical experience, formal educational activities and structured research opportunities.

This program consistently puts forth tremendously knowledgeable, dedicated and well-rounded pediatric endocrine fellows prepared for leadership in the field. Graduates of this fellowship have gone on to win grants and teaching awards, as well as secure prestigious academic and clinical positions.

Why Endocrinology and Diabetes Fellows Choose CHAM

Our fellowship program includes a Fellow's Continuity Clinic offering training in the chronic diseases that define many of the endocrine and metabolic disorders we treat. This unique program, under the guidance of an attending physician, gives fellows continued contact with their own patients over a three-year period. CHAM also provides mentorship and training in the multidisciplinary approach we use to successfully manage type 1 and type 2 diabetes throughout childhood.

Interviews will be held from August to October, and candidates will submit their rank list of programs for the fall match of the National Resident Matching Program. If you have questions please contact Dr. Kristina Derrick or Chantel Richardson
