The St. Luke’s-Anderson Endocrinology fellowship strikes a balance between inpatient consult service and outpatient clinic experiences through both years of training. The inpatient consult services see both diabetes and general endocrinology consults on a variety services including cardiothoracic surgery, trauma surgery, surgical oncology, medical oncology, and others. We participate in the “Own the Bone” osteoporosis program identifying patients admitted with fragility fractures to facilitate outpatient care.

Our wide referral network allows fellows to see both common endocrine conditions, such as diabetes, and rarer conditions, such as acromegaly and pheochromocytoma. As endocrinology is a discipline that collaborates frequently with other services, we encourage elective rotations in specialties that complement adult endocrinology training, such as Pediatric Endocrinology, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (OBGYN), and Diagnostic Radiology. Our fellowship supports training in diabetes technology use, and we collaborate with our diabetes educators and nutritionists for the care or our diabetes patients.

  • Year 1 focuses on the general care of endocrinology patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings, including exposure to diabetes education, insulin pump management, and interpretation of continuous glucose monitoring.

    Each fellow has a weekly continuity clinic of their own patients on Thursday mornings, regardless of rotation.

    There is 18 weeks of inpatient consultation service in the first year. Fellows on the inpatient consult service will still attend their continuity clinic on Thursday mornings.

    Outpatient rotations include clinic sessions with attendings at the Center Valley, Anderson, and Warren locations. Fellows will rotate through all sites during both years. Start times vary depending on the attending’s schedule.

  • Year 2 of fellowship expands on the first year experiences and provides additional opportunities in elective rotations in the SLUHN which enhances the care of complex endocrine cases.

    Continuity clinic remains weekly on Thursday mornings.

    There is an additional 8 weeks of inpatient consultation service in the second year. Fellows on the inpatient consult service will still attend their continuity clinic on Thursday mornings.

    Outpatient rotations include clinic sessions with attendings at the Center Valley, Anderson, and Warren locations. Fellows will rotate through all sites during both years. Start times vary depending on the attending’s schedule.

    Electives may include but are not limited to:

    • Radiology and thyroid ultrasound and biopsy
    • Pediatric endocrinology
    • Weight management
    • Reproductive endocrinology and infertility
    • Maternal fetal medicine

Research: A research rotation is offered to provide an opportunity to pursue research and other scholarly projects with faculty. Fellows are encouraged to pursue scholarly activity outside of the endocrinology division as well in related fields.

Additional Training: Training in thyroid ultrasound and fine needle aspiration biopsy, DXA interpretations, insulin pump management, and continuous glucose monitor interpretation will take place throughout both years of fellowship.

Professional Development: Fellows are encouraged to attend the Endocrine University, which have sessions for both first and second year fellows throughout the academic year.

Fellows may attend an additional conference to present scholarly activity.

Additional fellow educational opportunities may also be made available by endocrinology professional societies throughout the academic year. Fellows are encouraged to participate.
