CLINICAL FELLOWSHIP TRAINING

 


 

Welcome to the University of Pittsburgh Endocrinology and Metabolism fellowship program. Our program is designed to fulfill the needs of trainees who anticipate their future activities to be solely clinical practice, those who expect to function as clinician-educators and those who intend to pursue careers in clinical and/or basic endocrinology research. Our program recognizes that some trainees may evolve into specialists whose activities encompass more than one of the above career paths. The teaching environment and educational experiences for trainees will equip them to become strong clinicians, educators, and investigators.

The Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism provides a collegial community of faculty, trainees, and staff working in state-of-the-art clinical and research facilities. The clinical training program provides broad clinical exposure with a heady mixture of common disease and rare conditions. Our extensive inpatient and outpatient clinical activities are based at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, UPMC Shadyside Hospital, UPMC Montefiore Hospital, Children's Hospital and the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System. The University of Pittsburgh ranks 5th among institutions of higher education in the United States; based on National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding. Our outstanding NIH T32-funded Training Program in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism takes advantage of the rich scientific and clinical resources available at the University of Pittsburgh.

The City of Pittsburgh and its surrounding area offer vibrant and highly affordable communities with a wealth of resources to support personal development and foster the lifestyle balance critical to individual success.  Please explore the website, contact us if you need more information and come for a visit.
