Message from the Program Director

Thank you for taking the time to examine our program. Our goal is to ensure clinical excellence in all areas of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism while permitting maximum flexibility for varying career goals. Fellows attend clinics and consulting service in each year of the program. The consulting team includes faculty, endocrine fellows, medicine residents, and senior medical students. We can accommodate fellows who want to concentrate on either research or clinical work by adjusting clinical duties within the guidelines set for certification in Endocrinology and Metabolism. If you join our fellowship program, your program will likely follow this schedule:

  • Bi-monthly research conferences (fellows participate in selection of topics)
  • Weekly clinical endocrine conferences (fellows, medical residents, and faculty present)
  • Weekly clinical case sessions, journal club, and board review (for endocrine residents and students)
  • Clinical conferences in the Department of Internal Medicine take place daily at both adult hospitals.
  • Internal Medicine Grand Rounds occurs weekly.
  • Endocrine Grand Rounds occurs once a month on average.
  • Research seminars organized by Basic Science Departments are held two to three times every week.

Evaluations

  • To ensure professional growth and guarantee that the fellows meet ACGME milestones, they will receive evaluations by each attending they work with on inpatient and outpatient services. These evaluations will be discussed with each fellow and will be available to them.

If you have any questions please contact me or Dr. Maraka. If you are interested in applying, please follow the APPLY link in the right-hand menu.
