Endocrinology Faculty and Fellows, May 2019

The Endocrinology Fellowship Training Program at the University of Kansas Medical Center is a two-year program designed to train outstanding clinicians in Endocrine diseases who will have the skills and knowledge to succeed in either the academic or private health care sectors.

The overall objective of our program is to produce well-trained, competent, compassionate physicians who are certified by the ABIM in Endocrinology. We aim to graduate fellows that are committed to life-long learning and becoming medical pillars in their communities.

Training Sites
Endocrinology fellows rotate at two primary teaching sites:
• The University of Kansas Medical Center - 8 months/year
• The Kansas City Veterans Administrative Medical Center (KCVA) - 4 months/year 

Fellows are expected to attend weekly and monthly Endocrine conferences, interdisciplinary conferences and other Internal Medicine conferences. 

Conference Frequency
Endocrinology Core Lecture Weekly 3-4/month
Endocrinology Case Study Series Weekly
Endocrinology Case Conference Monthly
Endocrine Journal Club Monthly
Thyroid/Parathyroid Tumor Board Monthly 3rd Wednesday
Diabetes Care Committee Monthly 3rd Monday
Endocrine Research Conference Monthly

Our training is focused on developing clinical practitioners in diabetes and endocrinology, but a research experience is also required and 6 months of your training are dedicated to research, along with projects in quality and improvement and patient safety. The research experience linked with didactic teaching and independent learning activities will prepare the trainee to meet the challenges of rapidly changing technology and new bodies of knowledge. For fellows primarily directed towards clinical practice and teaching, the research experience will serve as a foundation for a critical appreciation of how new knowledge becomes a part of medical practice. For all fellows, our collective experience is that research, whether basic or clinical, is a stimulating and rewarding experience. 

Fellows are expected to particiate in the education of medical students in physical diagnosis, and in education of students, interns and residents who rotate through the Endocrinology service.
