Endocrinology Fellowship Tracks
Two training tracks are offered at the Division of Endocrinology for applicants interested in endocrinology careers.
Clinical track is designed for those interested in pursuing careers as clinical and/or academic endocrinologists. Opportunities are available for clinical or laboratory research, but the main thrust of the track is directed towards an excellent clinical training in endocrinology and metabolism. Experience is gained on inpatient consultation services, outpatient clinics and at didactic conferences. Promotion from year one to year two of training is contingent upon satisfactory performance during the first year and attainment of all the required milestone set forth by ACGME. This two-year training program leads to board eligibility in the subspecialty of endocrinology and metabolism.
Research track is designed to prepare candidates for a research-focused (clinical or basic) academic career in endocrinology and metabolism. A minimum of three years commitment is expected from applicants to this track. Components of the track will include sufficient clinical experience to provide board eligibility in endocrinology and metabolism, appropriate formal classroom work in the graduate school of Case Western Reserve University and a minimum of two years research experience in the laboratory of one of the members of the division and/or one of the collaborating faculty in the basic science departments. Specific details, research focus and available slots vary and are discussed with interested candidates.
