For more than 40 years, The Johns Hopkins Endocrinology Fellowship Program has trained academic endocrinologists who plan careers as physician-scientists, clinical-investigators, or health services investigators. The program is based in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism in the Department of Medicine. We have the faculty, facilities, and curriculum to provide fellows with both excellent clinical training and outstanding research experience.
The Division faculty have broad clinical and scientific expertise in all major subspecialty areas housed within endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism. Their clinical teaching further is augmented by Johns Hopkins faculty in outside specialties including pediatrics, cardiology and gynecology. Fully staffed and equipped outpatient and inpatients facilities provide an ideal environment for exceptional patient care and clinical teaching. The institution is one of the principal tertiary referral centers in the nation and the world for patients with endocrine disorders. Johns Hopkins is also a top provider of primary endocrine consultative services to a large urban and suburban population in the mid-Atlantic region. Consequently, fellows in clinical training are exposed a large number of patients with the full spectrum of endocrine conditions, ranging from all common disorders to the most exotic diseases.
The Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism provides both two and three-year fellowship opportunities (see below for further details). In the two-year, Clinical Scholar Track, fellows are given the opportunity over the course of their training to develop the skills necessary to become exceptional subspecialists and clinicians within a scholarly academic setting. In the three-year, Clinical and Basic Science Research Track, fellows can pursue one of two research training pathways: 1) The Clinical-Investigator Pathway, pursuing clinical research training related to human subjects or epidemiological studies of endocrine and metabolic disorders, or 2) the Physician-Scientist Pathway, learning how to perform cellular and molecular studies in Endocrinology & Metabolism. Applicants are encouraged, but not obliged, to choose which track (two- or three- year) to apply for prior to the interview date.
Resources for research training on the Clinical and Basic Science Research Track include fully-equipped molecular and cell biology laboratories, four NIH-funded Clinical Research Centers, a Clinical Studies Unit, and a Comprehensive Diabetes Center. In addition, fellows may pursue investigative training study in one of several closely affiliated laboratories and clinical research facilities at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. The Division holds two NIH-funded training grants--one for Endocrine Molecular and Cell Biology Research Training, and the second for Clinical and Epidemiological Research Training in Diabetes and Endocrinology. These grants, along with additional NIH training programs in affiliated departments, institutional endowments, and other funds, provide ample support for basic, clinical, and health services research training.
