Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship Curriculum Year 1

  • 75% CLINICAL ENDOCRINOLOGY, includes exposure to adult endo, reproductive endo and genetics
    • 80% outpatient
      Your outpatient experience in pediatric endocrinology allows you to participate in diagnostic and therapeutic decision making and then have continuity of care rather than rotating into the middle of established clinical care.
    • 20% inpatient
      Inpatient work will focus on consultative endocrinology and includes 1 month at Shriner's evaluating and treating children with metabolic bone disease.
  • 15% RESEARCH
    You will also play a role in pharmaceutical research, and work in other aspects of endocrinology, including provocative testing and insulin pump therapy. As part of your own research experience, you will develop a clinical research project from a question or area of interest during this first year of concentrated clinical exposure.
  • 10% PATHOLOGY, STATISTICS, GENETICS
