Dual subspecialty training in Med-Peds endocrinology is a four-year pathway. The first two years of fellowship are dedicated to clinical training, with clinical rotations divided between adult and pediatric training sites. The curriculum integrates inpatient and outpatient rotations so that combined Med-Peds trainees have a comprehensive clinical experience in diagnostic evaluation and management of diabetes and endocrine disorders in patients of all ages. Med-Peds fellows will have the same clinical components, including conferences, continuity clinic, and didactic teaching experiences completed by the usual categorical fellow.
The third and fourth years of fellowship are dedicated for scholarly activity. Clinical, translational and basic science research opportunities are available for fellowship research/scholarly activity. Please check out the Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism and Pediatric Diabetes and Endocrinology research websites for more information. A scholarly oversight committee that includes program leadership supervises the trainee’s research/scholarly activity. Med-Peds fellows participate in a core curriculum to support their research/scholarly activity. Combined Med-Peds faculty members are available for mentorship in career development as Med-Peds trainees have diverse career opportunities and are uniquely qualified for careers that span pediatric and adult endocrinology.
