IM Endocrinology Fellowship
The Eastern Virginia Medical School Endocrinology Fellowship is a 2-year clinical program wherein fellows are trained to enter clinical practice and provide top-notch endocrine care to a diverse population of patients with endocrine diseases. Fellows are trained in both outpatient and inpatient endocrinology, through their own outpatient clinics, a variety of clinical rotation experiences including but not limited to pediatric endocrinology, endocrinology and pregnancy, and reproductive endocrinology, and our inpatient general endocrine and cardiovascular/diabetes consult services. Fellows rotate through a diverse group of clinical settings, including our own endocrine clinics at the Strelitz Diabetes Center (outpatient), the Veterans’ Administration Medical Center in Hampton and in Virginia Beach (outpatient), and the Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and Heart Hospital (inpatient). In our clinics the fellows work with certified diabetes educators and our dietician. Fellows are trained by faculty certified in thyroid ultrasound and fine-needle aspiration, and bone density interpretation, and are taught the skills necessary to utilize insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors in clinical practice. Fellows are involved in scholarly activities including clinical research and abstract presentations at national meetings, and are involved in quality improvement projects designed to help them learn the significance of quality improvement and how it will apply to their clinical practice. We have an active and involved faculty who enjoy participating in fellows’ weekly didactics (case conference, lectures, journal club and board review). At the completion of their fellowship training, our graduates are well-prepared to sit for the Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism board examination.
