Joshua D. Safer, MD,
Program Director

The Combined Boston University-Harvard-VA Endocrinology, Diabetes and Nutrition fellowship is an ACGME-accredited fellowship program. The program is based at the Boston University Medical Campus which is home to both the Boston Medical Center and the Boston University School of Medicine.

Fellows will also spend both clinical and research time at the Boston University/Harvard affiliated Boston Veterans Administration Hospital in order to provide learning opportunities with an even larger pool of faculty.

Boston Medical Center is a large, urban hospital. As the largest safety-net hospital in the region, its mission is to provide “exceptional care without exception.” The Boston VA Medical Center is jointly affiliated with both the Boston University School of Medicine and the Harvard Medical School.

The goal of the program is to provide excellent clinical endocrinology training and broad opportunities for research.

The clinical experience in the combined program is one of the largest and most comprehensive such experiences in the nation.

The faculty provide a broad range of research opportunities with externally supported programs that include Androgen Research, Nutrition Research, Obesity Research, Diabetes Research, Thyroid Research, Bone Health Research, and Adrenal Research.
