Research & Scholarly Activity

Fellows are expected to participate in research and other scholarly activities throughout their training. They will be required to create a plan for a research project and quality improvement project during the first few months of training. They will carry out the plan throughout their training under the guidance of a mentor. Fellows will have a mentor for each project and will meet at least quarterly. Scholarly activities can be pursued in areas outside of the endocrinology department such as surgery, pediatric endocrinology, reproductive endocrinology, genetics, internal medicine, family medicine, cardiology, etc. In addition, fellows will be encouraged to present and publish their findings in the form of case reports, poster presentations, original articles, etc. at national conferences and in publication.
