Learning Resources

Division faculty members are willing to share their reprint files and textbooks with you. Asking a faculty member with a special interest in the area resources can save you a great deal of time in identifying the best articles.

There are computers in the Fellows Room, but the Fellows always have priority for use of these systems. All of these PCs provide access to the Welch library databases, the Internet, patient information databases, and Up-to-Date, a CD-Rom database with current reviews on all endocrine topics. The faculty or Fellows can help you access these systems.
