The Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai provides fellows with the training they need to become leaders in the field of academic pediatric endocrinology.
Clinical training takes place on the main campus of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Inpatient training is held at the Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai. We also have our own dedicated office space in the Annenberg building for outpatient visits. Fellows and faculty routinely see patients with growth disorders, diabetes mellitus, pancreatic disorders, thyroid disorders, pubertal disorders, disorders of the reproductive system, adrenal disorders, bone disease and calcium metabolism, disorders of lipid metabolism, and endocrine tumor syndromes.
During all three years, fellows attend twice weekly morning sessions of continuity clinic where they see their patients for scheduled appointments. The first year clinical experience is divided into six to nine months of inpatient service and three to six months of outpatient experience. During the second and third years, outpatient clinical experience is limited to the continuity clinic and longitudinal patient follow-ups. Second year fellows have up to three months of inpatient service, and third year fellows have up to one month of inpatient service.
Our team rounds always include evidence-based patient presentations and discussions. Rounds may also include journal clubs, presentations of research in progress, and updates on topics in pediatric endocrinology and diabetes.
