Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship at UMMS-Baystate
The Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship Program at Baystate Medical Center, regional campus of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, is a three-year ACGME-accredited training program for pediatric residency graduates. We offer one position per year.
Rich Environment for Clinical and Academic Endocrinology
In addition to the backbone of pediatric endocrine and diabetes care, you will be exposed to a broad range of pathology in the hospital, outpatient clinics, and in didactic sessions.
You will work closely with our pediatric endocrinologists, and also be mentored and supervised by our specialists in obesity and weight management, adolescent medicine, reproductive endocrinology, genetics and adult endocrinology.
We are involved in numerous specialty clinics such as, Long Term Cancer Care, Cystic Fibrosis-Related Diabetes, Metabolic Bone Disease, and Multidisciplinary Type 2 Diabetes. This gives you the opportunity to work as a team with a pediatric endocrinologist and other sub-specialists, cross fertilizing and learning from each other to provide superb care to children with chronic disease.
Develop Competence in Independent Investigation
Our fellowship curriculum commits ample time to learning about research with the goal of fostering interest in scholarly endeavors.
Beginning in your first year, you will be learning the fundamentals of clinical and scientific investigation.
After choosing a faculty mentor from among the researchers at Baystate or at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, you will conduct a scholarly project—either a clinical or basic science research project—during your second and third years.
Combined Med-Peds Endocrinology Option
We also offer a 4-year combined Adult and Pediatric Endocrine fellowship for Medicine-Pediatric graduates.
The curriculum is structured such that the first year is primarily Pediatric Endocrine, the second year is primarily Adult Endocrine focused, and the last two years are combined with a focus on research. Applicants are encouraged to go through the Pediatrics Endocrine match in our program but will be asked to interview with both programs.
