The pediatric endocrinology fellowship program accepted its first extramural fellow in 1999 and has grown to accept two fellows per year. Approximately half of our fellows come from our department's residency program.
The fellowship program emphasizes both broad and deep clinical training, as well as experience in clinical research, bench research, or both. All of the fellows have published their fellowship projects as one or more papers in peer-reviewed literature, and the majority of division graduates take academic positions at UT Southwestern or other medical schools.
Our world-class institution provides fellows with:
- Opportunities to obtain basic science research training at an institution that is home to many world renowned investigators, including five Nobel Laureates and numerous distinguished faculty who are members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Institute of Medicine
- Opportunities to obtain clinical research training in our Department of Clinical Sciences, a department that has become the model for institutions across the nation
- Opportunities to obtain clinical endocrinology training at Children’s Medical Center Dallas, where growth and commitment to excellence place it as one of the nation's top 30 pediatric hospitals. Children’s is licensed for over 400 beds, has more than 50 pediatric specialty programs, and is the only pediatric hospital in the Southwest with a designated Level I trauma center.
