St. Luke’s Anderson Endocrinology Fellowship Mission Statement
Our mission is to prepare our fellows for excellence in knowledge and practice in the field of endocrinology. We strive for fellows to be able to provide quality, evidenced-based, and compassionate care in the clinical setting and to function as educators through interaction with residents throughout the St. Luke’s University Health Network and medical students from the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University and Temple/St. Luke’s School of Medicine. Ultimately, we expect our fellows to achieve board certification in diabetes and endocrinology and be fully prepared to practice in the clinical, academic, and community- based settings.
The goal of St. Luke’s-Anderson Endocrinology Fellowship is to provide comprehensive education and training in the field of clinical Endocrinology and Diabetes.
- 1. Having advanced understanding of endocrine physiology
- 2. Applying acquired knowledge to diagnosis, manage, treat, and prevent endocrine related disorders
- 3. Critically review diagnostic testing for endocrinology
- 4. Evaluating and appraising primary literature in endocrinology
- 5. Approaching patient care in a clinical, system-based, problem-based way that is cost-conscious, ethical and humanistic
- 6. Communicating effectively with patients and as a consultant in endocrinology to our colleague
- 7. Forming hypothesis led research, quality improvement, or equivalent scholarly activity
In person fellowship conferences are held at the Center Valley, PA, office location every Tuesday from 730-930a. We use Microsoft Teams as a virtual conference platform as needed. The major categories of didactics are listed, but additional workshops and presentations are arranged throughout the academic year.
- Endocrinology Physiology Review: Held the first 3 weeks of July each academic year. Provides a review of basic endocrinology and diabetes physiology. Led by endocrinology attendings.
- Endocrinology Grand Rounds: Held every other Tuesday at 7:30 am. Speakers are a mix of the endocrinology attendings and speakers from outside our division. Each endocrinology fellow will present one Grand Round session per academic year.
- Patient Care Conference: Every Tuesday morning at 8:30 am. This is a fellow led conference presented to co-fellows and attendings. Patient Care Conference requires the fellow to review the medical literature and present a topic in a case-based format with discussion. Fellows can expect to present 6-7 per academic year.
- Journal Club: Held monthly. Fellows lead a discussion of a recent peer reviewed article with co-fellows and attendings.
- Board Review: Sessions will be held monthly. Led by attendings.
- Research Updates: Fellows periodically present updates to their co-fellows and the endocrinology attendings describing progress of their research projects and other scholarly activities.
