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.

Scientific Meetings

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).
