The Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship Program is designed to train pediatricians to become leaders in the research and clinical care of children and adolescents with endocrine diseases and diabetes mellitus.
The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh provides three years of clinical and research fellowship training. The program is ACGME accredited and accepts three fellows per year. We offer two tracks, clinician educator and research. The first year of the program is dedicated to the acquisition of clinical expertise in pediatric endocrinology and diabetes. For fellows on the research track, the second and third years of the fellowship are devoted almost entirely to research and course work under the mentorship of a faculty member. Fellows on the clinician educator track will have additional clinical time during the second and third years with a focus on clinical research, quality improvement, and teaching.
Fellows are eligible for funding through a National Institutes of Health (NIH) T32 Training Grant or the philanthropy-supported David Nicholas fellowship. Fellows must be a United States citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident ("green card" holder) to be eligible for T32 support.
