Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism Fellowship

submenu

The Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism Fellowship at the University of Minnesota is a two-year program designed to provide the advanced training and experience necessary for an endocrinology consultant.

There is the option for a third research training year for trainees with a demonstrated interest and commitment to an academic endocrinology career.

Program Goals

Program Goals

The goals of our fellowship program are:

  • To learn basic and advanced endocrine biochemistry, physiology and pathophysiology as a basis for understanding endocrine disease.
  • To accumulate a critical mass of fundamental clinical knowledge and practical clinical and laboratory approaches for the diagnosis, management and prevention of endocrine disorders.
  • To acquire the technical skills required of a consultant in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism.
  • To acquire knowledge and skills necessary for providing cost-effective, ethical and humanistic care.
  • To acquire skills in design and performance of hypothesis-driven endocrine research, and to participate in such research or equivalent scholarly activity.

Our diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism fellowship program has been in existence for more than 35 years and over this time we have trained more than 70 fellows who have gone on to careers as academic endocrinologists, clinical endocrinologists and basic and clinical researchers.
