The fellowship offered in the Endocrinology Division is a two-year program (with an optional third year dedicated to research). There are seven fulltime endocrine faculty to supervise four endocrine fellows. This ratio ensures personalized teaching and interaction.
Weekly board review and didactics material are reviewed by all fellows and led by individual faculty. Joint monthly conferences are held with Neurosurgery, ENT surgery, and Nuclear Medicine to ensure continuity of patient care.
The program includes rotations both at University Hospital and the Veterans Administration Hospital. It is a comprehensive program involving inpatient consultations, outpatient clinic visits, clinical conferences and commonly performed procedures, such as ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration of the thyroid. Rotations through pediatric and reproductive endocrinology are scheduled during the fellowship.
Fellows are encouraged to develop a research project and to attend national scientific meetings.
