The Endocrine Fellowship Program at Thomas Jefferson University is a two-year clinical program. Two fellows are selected yearly into our program, and we participate in Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).
Our division offers a large volume and broad range of endocrine pathology to ensure a strong clinical experience. First year fellows rotate through the outpatient clinics at Jefferson and provide inpatient consultations at Jefferson and Methodist hospitals. Second year fellows have more outpatient duties and elective time in subspecialties, such as pediatric endocrine, ultrasonography, radiology and reproductive endocrinology. In the second year, opportunities are available to present abstracts and oral presentations at national endocrine conferences.
Every week, each fellow has an individual clinic supervised by an attending, protected lecture time, and he or she attends our endocrine forum. Endocrine grand rounds, thyroid conference, neuro-pituitary conference and Philadelphia endocrine society occur on a monthly basis. Sessions with our diabetes educator and technology rounds are also part of the fellowship program. The opportunity to identify an area of interest and work with a mentor is also available.
