Education

The Section’s fellowship program is very successful and has attracted outstanding fellows who have been active in clinical and research activities. The Section has received a five-year outstanding approval of its fellowship program with no citations.

The Section has continued to receive excellent reviews for its participation in the second-year medical school “Biology of Disease” course. In addition, the Section continues to attract fourth-year medical students and Medicine and Family Practice residents for a one-month clinical elective in Endocrinology. Many faculty members have presented endocrine conferences to colleagues in Primary Care, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Internal Medicine. Section faculty attend on the general medical wards and on the endocrine consult service, as well as participate in morning report for the medical residents.

Weekly Endocrine grand rounds — including outstanding national leaders presenting seminars and discussing cases, research seminars by faculty, and fellows’ case reports — have been extremely well attended. The Section has weekly fellow conferences with faculty participation and a journal club, as well as a weekly fellow board review luncheon conference. Section fellows participate in a Friday afternoon continuity clinic supervised by a faculty member.
