Medical Education Program
Our faculty supervises fellows in our ACGME-accredited two year endocrinology fellowship program as well as residents from the Baystate Internal Medicine and Medicine/Pediatrics programs.
The Baystate ACGME-accredited Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Fellowship Program provides a well-balanced, academic experience over a two year program. Fellows work closely with endocrinology faculty as well as faculty members in obstetrics/gynecology, endocrine surgery, nuclear medicine, radiology, pathology, pediatric endocrinology, reproductive endocrinology, podiatry and ophthalmology.
Fellows are ABIM board-eligible in endocrinology on successful completion of the fellowship program.
