Endocrinology and Diabetes Fellowship at NSLIJHS

We offer a two-year fellowship in adult endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism. Our fellowship provides a diverse clinical experience in a warm, mentoring and academically rigorous environment, with fellows rotating through two tertiary care hospitals (North Shore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center), both of which have a multidisciplinary inpatient diabetes team. Fellows also participate in a strong outpatient program, seeing both faculty practice patients as well as managing their own patients in clinic.

Our fellows emerge from training as strong clinicians, prepared for either clinical or academic careers, well-versed in critically evaluating the medical literature, with extensive experience in performing thyroid fine needle aspirations, performing and analyzing bone density scans, managing insulin pumps and interpreting glucose sensor data.

Program Structure

The first year of the fellowship is predominantly clinical, with two months of protected research time. In the second year, fellows have a choice of clinical rotations, including pediatric endocrinology, reproductive endocrinology, diabetes and pregnancy, nuclear medicine and the opportunity for individualized electives. There is also expanded time for pursuing a research project with opportunities for conducting both clinical and basic science research. Throughout both years, fellows participate in academic conferences, including endocrine tumor board, neuroendocrine conference, journal club, case conferences and endocrine grand rounds.

Research and Scholarship

Our fellows are expected to conduct scholarly research and to present at local and national meetings. We have faculty enagaged in clinical research and a relationship with the Feinstein Institute, where fellows can pursue basic and translational research. We strongly encourage the fellows to publish their research findings and interesting clinical cases.
