Curriculum | Endocrinology Fellowship
The long tradition of excellence in diabetes and endocrine patient care, teaching and research in the Division of Endocrinology Diabetes and Nutrition affords fellows a unique environment for clinical training and participation in exciting advances in translational and clinical research.
Our faculty is committed to providing advanced training to fellows in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism allowing them to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and experiences required by a consultant in this field.
Upon completion of our Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism fellowship, fellows are well equipped to provide expert clinical care for individuals with endocrine and metabolic disorders, and/or pursue academic careers as clinician-educators.
Our program aims to:
- Educate fellows to be excellent consultants in general endocrinology and diabetes
- Produce excellent medical educators
- Train fellows to be life-long learners
- Train fellows in quality improvement and patient safety
University of Maryland Medical Center
The University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) is a 779 bed urban, tertiary care hospital with over 38,000 inpatient admissions and 400,000 outpatient visits each year. UMMC serves as a primary care center for neighborhood residents of Baltimore and the adjacent suburbs as well as a major referral center for the mid-Atlantic area.
Baltimore Veterans Affairs Medical Center
The Baltimore Veteran Affairs Medical Center (BVAMC) is located adjacent to UMMC with easy access between the two hospitals via a connecting pedestrian bridge.
The BVAMC houses 137 beds and has over 8,000 inpatient admissions and 500,000 outpatient visits each year. Approximately 4000 endocrine/diabetes outpatient visits occur each year. Involvement in the care of patients at the BVAMC permits the fellow a broader exposure to the spectrum of endocrine diseases than would otherwise be possible by seeing patients drawn solely from the population at large. Furthermore, the BVAMC serves a referral center for patients with more complex endocrine disorders from the surrounding VA Medical Centers and clinics.
University of Maryland Midtown
The UMMC Midtown Campus is a 208-bed community teaching hospital located in Baltimore City with over 100,000 inpatient admissions and outpatient visits each year. All of the outpatient diabetes and endocrine services for UMMC are located on the UMMC Midtown campus in the University of Maryland Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology (UMCDE). Over 10,000 patient appointments occur each year at the UMCDE.
