Fellowship Program in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Bone Disease
The training starts with a clinical year followed by the research year(s). The clinical training includes extensive experience in the diagnosis, evaluation, and management of endocrine and metabolic problems.
For ambulatory patient experience, fellows manage their own patients in two specialized continuity clinics:
- Endocrine Clinic
- Diabetes Clinics
In the Endocrine Clinic, fellows are also trained in performing thyroid and parathyroid ultrasound and thyroid fine needle aspirations. In the Diabetes Clinic, certified diabetes educators supports the care of all diabetes patients.
Fellows also have opportunities to participate in specialized office and clinic practices including:
- Bone and Mineral Disorders
- Gestational Diabetes
- Lipids Disorders
- Pediatric Endocrinology
- Reproductive Endocrinology
For inpatient setting training, fellows will rotate through four clinical consult services in their first year. At The Mount Sinai Health System, we have three rotations in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolic Services. At the Bronx Veterans Affairs Medical Center, we have one combined Endocrinology and Diabetes rotation.
Fellows will receive training in ablation radioiodine treatment from the Department of Nuclear Medicine for patients with thyroid disorders. Extensive exposures in the fields of neuroendocrinology, reproductive endocrinology, pediatric endocrinology, and bariatric medicine are obtained through our collaboration with the Departments of :
- Gynecology and Reproductive Science
