Fellows in the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetology spend 12 months in clinical training and 24 months conducting either basic laboratory and/or clinical research. Eight months of the first year and two months in each of the subsequent two years are devoted to clinical training. There is a standard curriculum of pediatric endocrinology topics during weekly division conferences.
Combined medicine-pediatrics fellows spend a total of 12 months on clinical Pediatric Endocrinology, another 12 months on clinical Internal Medicine Endocrinology, and 24 months conducting clinical or basic research. The overlap in research training between the fellowships allows combined fellows to become board-eligible for both the American Board of Pediatrics and American Board of Internal Medicine in four years.
