Mentoring for research projects begins in the first year, and fellows are encouraged to pursue clinical or basic research opportunities based on their fellowship and career goals. During the 1st year, fellows select topics of interest and review existing literature to develop potential research questions. During the 2nd and 3rd year, fellows perform a wide range of clinical, translational, and laboratory research related to pediatric endocrinology and diabetes. Findings are presented in peer-reviewed publications, as well as at national and international conferences. A list of recently published articles and abstracts presented at conferences can be provided upon request by e-mailing Robert Rapaport, MD, Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes Fellowship Program Director.
