Endocrinology Fellowship

The Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Fellowship is a comprehensive two-year training program (with an optional third year) that combines start-of-the-art clinical training - both inpatient and outpatient - with innovative research opportunities. The Endocrinology Division at UT Southwestern has a rich tradition of excellence in research, scholarship, clinical practice, and in the application of new knowledge to improve the health of patients. The history of our endocrine division dates back more than 60 years, and the graduates of our fellowship program are recognized leaders in the field of endocrinology. We currently have more than two dozen dedicated faculty members actively involved in the clinical training of our fellows, many of whom also serve as research mentors.

Our Mission

Our mission is to train the next generation of endocrinologists and impart our excitement and enthusiasm for clinical endocrinology and research to our diverse group of fellows. Our fellows develop clinical, research and leadership skills needed to face the challenges and opportunities that await them after graduation and succeed in their future careers. Our dedication to the core areas of education, discovery, and healing also form the foundation of UT Southwestern's mission.

A Unique Training Environment

Clinical Training

Our clinical training is centered at three major teaching sites: Parkland Memorial Hospital and its outpatient clinic, William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital and its affiliated clinics, and the Dallas Veterans Affairs Medical Center and its outpatient clinics. Each offers a unique exposure to diverse patient populations and clinical pathology across the breadth of the field of endocrinology.
