Welcome to

Endocrinology and Diabetes


Fellowship Curriculum

Our Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes fellowship program combines clinical work, didactics, and research throughout each stage of the full-time, three-year program. Fellows complete most of their clinical work during the first year, allowing them to devote the final two years to research and the culmination of their fellowship - an original research project.

Year One

First-year fellows split their time between outpatient clinics and inpatient service (primary patients and consults). The first-year fellows will alternate between outpatient and inpatient service every 2-3 weeks. Fellows also work extensively with the fourth-year medical students and residents.

• The inpatient fellow attends two Fellow Continuity Clinics. The inpatient fellow manages the inpatient endocrine service and consults.

• The outpatient fellow attends the two Fellow Continuity Clinics along with observing in attending clinics and rotating in multiple specialty and multidisciplinary clinics within the division and with other divisions. The outpatient fellow responds to emergency pages to answer questions from physicians, school health clinics, and parents.

Specialty clinics include:

  • Pediatric Cancer Survivorship Clinic
  • Metabolic Bone Disease Clinic
  • Pediatric Thyroid Nodule and Cancer Clinic
  • TIGER (Total Integrated Genitourinary Endocrine Reproductive Clinic for Differences of Sexual Development) Clinic
  • Williams Syndrome Clinic
  • 22Q Clinic
  • Adult Endocrine Clinic
  • Transgender Medicine Clinic
  • Heart Healthy Clinic (Lipid Disorders


Years Two and Three

In the second and third years, fellows devote themselves to honing their research techniques through lectures, case discussions, and weekly didactics (both pediatric and adult) as well as presenting their original work at national and international conferences. Organizational and systems skills like manuscript preparation and medical journal review techniques are also incorporated into the 3 year research course.

Clinical responsibilities continue to include:

  • Fellow Continuity Clinics (two half-days per week that include diabetes and endocrine patients)
  • Freedom to attend additional general or specialty clinics to broaden exposure
  • Night and weekend calls, split evenly among all fellows.
