Endocrinology Fellowship

The Emory Department of Medicine offers two-year fellowships in endocrinology to qualified, promising physicians. For physicians seeking an academic research career, the Department of Medicine offers a three year fellowship with more dedicated time for research.

Why Endocrinology at Emory

Emory's Endocrinology, Metabolism and Lipids fellowship program provides a very large and broad patient mix at four large metropolitan hospitals: Emory University Hospital, Emory University Hospital MidtownAtlanta VA Medical Center and Grady Health System. We have a very large and diverse clinical and research faculty.

We have unique strengths in pituitary diseases, metabolic bone disease and osteoporosis, nutrition and lipid metabolism, thyroid diseases, and diabetes. We offer several electives including nuclear medicine, reproductive endocrinology, pediatric endocrinology. Each fellow receives funds to travel to a national endocrine meeting yearly.

Endocrine fellows receive feedback continuously throughout the year with semi‐annual meetings with the program director, an annual in‐service written examination, thyroid biopsy simulation, and 360 examinations. We are the only Endocrinology, Metabolism and Lipids fellowship program in the country to perform an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) for our fellows.

First Year

The first year fellow will have between 3‐9 clinical months depending upon the career track of the fellow. Fellows will spend time at each major hospital on the endocrine consultation service and have a weekly endocrinology continuity clinic. Fellows will also have an opportunity for some electives in their first year.

Second Year

The second year fellow will have between 3‐9 months of clinical months in the second year depending on the career track of the fellow.

Fellows will continue with their weekly endocrine continuity clinic. Research track fellows will have some more time for research during this year. Clinical fellows will have opportunities for electives.

Third Year (Research Track)

The research track fellow will continue with a weekly continuity clinic and spend 2‐4 months in some clinical activity with the rest of the time dedicated for research. The goal of this year is to develop research skills necessary for a junior faculty member dedicated to research.

Research Experience

Active participation in clinical and/or laboratory research projects is an essential part of the training program. Clinical track fellows will be assigned a research mentor who will help the fellow design a research project that can be completed within the two year time period. Research track fellows will work with a research mentor who will help design a research program over a three year period. Research track fellows will be required to submit a grant proposal for external funding by the end of their second year of fellowship.

Objectives for research training include:

• Execution of a research project under direction of faculty mentor
• Understand the pertinent research literature
• Present data from research experience at a national meeting
