  • Research Training
    Research is an essential part of our training program. Our fellows are required to find a mentor during the first few months of training and begin working on their project(s) during their first year. Research time increases significantly during the second year of training and fellows are expected to devote approximately 70% effort to their research project(s). Research may be in clinical or basic science projects depending on fellow interests. By the end of the second year of training, our fellows are expected to prepare and write up their research findings and submit them for publication. Presentation of their research findings at regional or national scientific meetings is strongly encouraged.
  • Teaching Experience
    Our training program is designed to provide our fellows with significant opportunities for teaching. Fellows are expected to help train/teach our residents and students rotating through the service while in charge of the consult service. Fellows discuss case and formulate a management plan together with the residents and students prior to rounds with the supervising attending on a daily basis. Fellows are also required to present and discuss one or more cases each week during our weekly endocrine best case conference, and once monthly in our endocrine journal club. In addition, fellows are asked to prepare and present several times each year during our weekly endocrine grand rounds conference. In addition, fellows are asked to help deliver lectures to first and/or second year medical students on a basic or clinical endocrine topic.
