The MedStar Georgetown University Hospital/MedStar Washington Hospital Center Endocrinology and Metabolism Fellowship is a combined program between MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and MedStar Washington Hospital Center. This is a two-year Program with an optional third research year that fulfills the Requirements for subspecialty certification set forth by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
During the first year of post-residency training, the fellows see in-patient consultations on the clinical wards and care for outpatients in the Endocrinology and Metabolism Clinics at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Fellows also rotate for 6 weeks through the Inter-Institute Endocrinology Fellowship Training Program of the National Institutes of Health and 2-4 weeks in Pediatric Endocrinology with the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
The fellows attend 2-3 half-day clinic sessions per week during the first year and continue to see outpatients on a longitudinal basis during the second year. During the first year,each trainee begins a clinical research project under the direction of the full-time staff. Substantial additional time is available in the second year for basic and/or clinical research projects. A third year is potentially available for trainees interested in more intensive research exposure, but depends on the availability of funding in specific laboratories.
Candidates for the Fellowship Program must have satisfied all requirements for certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
