Message from the Director

Our Fellowship program provides a diversified, cutting edge, training program that encompasses the breadth of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism while providing in-depth experience in all endocrine subspecialty areas in a congenial setting that is conducive to learning and work.

Our primary mission is to train Fellows for academic careers in endocrinology and diabetes, and to this end our program also requires the completion of a research project under expert faculty supervision. Our expanding, highly trained faculty includes nationally and internationally renowned clinicians and scientists thus ensuring both clinical and research training at the highest level.

The patient population at our principal medical facilities (Jackson Memorial Hospital, the Miami Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the University of Miami Hospital and Clinics ) provides Fellows with a challenging wealth of opportunities in a unique clinical environment. At the research level our faculty provides a wide range of training opportunities in epidemiologic, clinical and laboratory-based research.

With guidance, mentoring and teaching from our outstanding faculty, we believe our Fellows will achieve their full potential.
