A core two-year program has been designed to provide the trainee with the appropriate skills to maintain a consultative practice in pediatric endocrinology and metabolism. The first year of the program is primarily clinical and the trainee will be exposed to a broad spectrum of pediatric endocrinology conditions through both a variety of outpatient clinics and inpatient consultations.
The second year of the program will be tailored to the resident’s learning needs and future career goals with an increased emphasis on research, if desired. Continuity clinics in both endocrine and diabetes are established in the first year and continue until the completion of training. Residents will have a staff supervisor for these clinics and have graded levels of responsibility.
Opportunities for a third year of training with an academic focus are available and encouraged.
