Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) We offer two training pathways: The Physician-Scientist Path (2 positions) and The Clinical Educator Path (1 position).

Applicants are encouraged to apply for one track only.

The first year of both tracks is identical and 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 at either the Johns Hopkins Hospital or the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. All first-year fellows attend one continuity clinic and between 4-7 subspecialty clinics each week depending on consult responsibilities. 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. The second year is tailored to the fellow’s individual interests and future career plans. Clinical Scholar Track fellows are expected to complete 1-2 mentored, scholarly projects 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 scholar training is to prepare individuals who will become outstanding clinical endocrinologists and leaders in the academic setting or practice.  This track is not meant for those fellows hoping to pursue a research career in the clinical or basic sciences.

The Clinical and Basic Science Research Track is a three-year program. This track is designed for fellows who want to train in basic/translational research or clinical investigation (epidemiology or human laboratory). On this pathway, physician-scientist fellows are given protected research time and are involved in one or more 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.
