Fellowship Training Program

The division's highly regarded Fellowship Training Program is designed to provide trainees with experience in all aspects of the subspecialty and to prepare them to successfully assume roles as clinicians, clinician-educators, or clinical and/or basic investigators.

The Endocrinology Fellowship Training Program accepts four applicants per year. The program offers exposure to a diverse patient population affected by a remarkable depth and breadth of endocrine disorders. Fellows provide inpatient consultative services at three hospitals—Tisch Hospital (the University Hospital of our system), Bellevue Hospital (where we care for medically underserved individuals from around the world), and the Manhattan VA Hospital (where in addition to general endocrine problems, there is an opportunity to focus on male endocrinopathies, endocrine consequences of traumatic brain injury, etc.) In addition, fellows will have the opportunity to rotate through the faculty group practice offices, pediatric endocrine and diabetes clinics, as well as high risk obstetrics clinic.

This unmatched clinical experience is complemented by a highly interactive didactic education in both basic and clinical arenas under the supervision of expert physicians and scientists. This includes an “Endocrine 101” summer series, followed by a weekly diabetes core conference, endocrine core conference, case management conference, thyroid/nuclear medicine conference, grand rounds series, board review course/journal club, and monthly interdisciplinary thyroid/parathyroid cytology, and neuroendocrine conferences.

Endocrine fellows are also given research opportunities and responsibilities. Each trainee meets with the program director during his or her first year to discuss research opportunities and an appropriate mentor. Active participation in research studies occupies about 60 percent of a trainee's second year. For some trainees, research forms the basis of a third year under the sponsorship of the faculty member with whom they are working.

These are the clinical and research fellowship training opportunities:
