The Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Fellowship spans three continuous years, beginning July 1 of each year.
The first year consists of 90% clinical work and 10% lab and clinical investigation.
The second year is 90% basic laboratory techniques, clinical and animal investigation, and 10% clinical reproductive endocrinology. Second-year fellows also participate in a graduate course in biostatistics.
The third year consists of 80% clinical and basic research in the fellow's focus area and 20% clinic time. The first six months are 90% research and 10% clinical practice. The second six months are spent completing the following electives:
- Medical/pediatric endocrinology
- In vitro fertilization lab
- Andrology and endocrinology labs and clinics
