Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowships

Pediatric Endocrinology had its start as a subspecialty when Lawson Wilkins agreed to begin a pediatric endocrine clinic at Johns Hopkins in 1935. Dr. Wilkins began training fellows in pediatric endocrinology in 1946, many of whom went on to found pediatric endocrine divisions across the country.

In addition to our important role in training leaders in pediatric endocrinology, the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes has a rich history of groundbreaking advances in clinical, translational and bench research. Our fellows join us in our mission to provide exceptional care to pediatric patients with endocrine disorders and to further knowledge in our field.

Fellows receive diverse training on the diagnosis and management of both common and rare pediatric endocrine disorders, and have the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research with the potential to positively impact the lives of children cared for by pediatric endocrinologists everywhere.

Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity

The Department of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Pediatric Endocrinology fellowship training program are committed to cultivating and sustaining an environment that fosters the development of diverse physician leaders who are committed to eliminating the nation’s health inequities through patient care, education, advocacy, and research. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values of our fellowship program, department and school of medicine

Through pathway programming, such as the Johns Hopkins Visiting Resident Elective Program to Promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Pediatric Subspecialties we aim to build a community that reflects the broad array of human differences found in our society at large.

Scientific Meetings

Fellows will be provided support to attend one scientific meeting per year.

First Year:  In general, fellows will attend the PES (Pediatric Endocrine Society) Annual Meeting.   Payment will come from division funds.

Second and Third Years:  Fellows can attend either the PES Annual Meeting or another Scientific Meeting that may be more appropriate for their area of research or interest.   In general, money to support this will come from funds other than division funds.  Options include:  travel funds from a training grant; support from a research mentor’s laboratory; travel awards.  However, if no such alternative funds can be identified, the division will provide funds.

Covered Expenses Include: Registration, airfare for domestic meetings, a hotel room for the duration of the meeting, and meals (per university guidelines).

Educational Expenses

$500 per year towards educational or “business” expenses.  This would include expenses such as:  society memberships, textbooks, travel costs beyond those already covered (e.g. international travel; travel to a second meeting in a year), and licensing or exam fees.  (Note: per university guidelines, this cannot be used to reimburse for cell phone service.)

Each incoming fellow will be provided with a university-purchased laptop (approximate value $1000).
