Foreign medical graduates will need to have completed a US-based residency program in Internal Medicine prior to beginning the program. At this time we can only accept US Citizens and permanent residents, but encourage all eligible applicants to apply. Selected applicants will be invited to Baltimore for an interview and further discussion of professional goals. Fellowship periods begin July 1st.
We offer two training pathways: The Physician-Scientist Path (2 positions) and The Clinical Educator Path (1 position).
The first year of both tracks is identical being predominantly dedicated to clinical training. All Fellows spend 11 months in outpatient endocrinology and metabolism clinics as well as leading the Inpatient Endocrinology Consultation Service. All first year fellows attend one continuity clinic and between 4-7 subspecialty clinics each week. Both pathways fulfill all of the educational, clinical and research components required for ABIM certification.
The Clinician-Educator pathway is a two year program. The second year is designed to hone clinical skills and provide special training to master and begin executing the skills of a clinical scholar and educator. During the second year, fellows maintain their weekly continuity clinic, participate in endocrine electives and also have additional opportunities to acquire expertise in technical and didactic skills, including DEXA scan assessments, thyroid ultrasound and fine needle aspiration, insulin pump management and continuous glucose monitoring training, curriculum design, and providing trainee feedback. Clinical-Educator Path fellows are expected to complete a mentored scholarship project that can be submitted for publication. These fellows also complete a quality improvement project as well as teach medical students, residents and first year fellows. The goal of clinical educator training is to prepare individuals who will become outstanding clinical endocrinologists and scholars in the academic setting or practice.
The Physician-Scientist Pathway continues in years 2 and 3 and is a 3 year program. This track is designed for fellows who want to train in basic/translational research or clinical investigation (epidemiology or human laboratory). During the program, physician-scientist fellows are involved in one or more research projects supervised by a faculty mentor. We expect that fellows will publish abstracts and manuscripts during the training program. Fellows will be mentored in grant writing and manuscript preparation. In addition to research training, fellows maintain their weekly continuity clinic and participate in all conferences. There are opportunities for physician-scientist fellows to obtain post-graduate degrees in Clinical Investigation, Epidemiology or Public Health. The goal of this training is to prepare individuals for research careers in academic medicine.
Our fellowship graduates become leaders in the field all over the country and the globe
