The Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Fellowship Program at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, is a two-year program that offers exposure to a diverse patient population affected by endocrine disorders.
The fellowship is designed to deliver well-rounded clinical and research training to prepare fellows for the extent and complexity of clinical practice of this wonderful subspecialty. As a fellow, you will have exposure to a broad spectrum of endocrine disorders including thyroid disorders, lipid and bone metabolism, reproductive and neuro-endocrinology, pituitary and adrenal disorders, diabetes mellitus, and obesity.
The goal of this two-year program is for fellows to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for providing ethical, humanistic, cost-effective care for patients with endocrine disorders in both inpatient and ambulatory settings. As a fellow, you have access to training experience that is broad, highly specialized, and offers a professional, collegial atmosphere with one-on-one working relationships with faculty.
A long-standing tradition of highly efficient and safe patient-centered care creates an ideal setting for professional development where you can:
- Experience a large volume and variety of endocrine disorders ranging from common to exotic
- Enjoy world-class in-house clinical laboratory services with rapid results
- Experience in treating metabolic disorders in people undergoing solid-organ transplants
- Diverse elective opportunities
- Clinical and laboratory research experience
You'll enjoy an established balance between education and service with clinical assignments that reflect what endocrinologists do in clinical practice (over 80% of clinical time is spent in outpatient subspecialty clinics).
After completing this fellowship, you will be able to identify, evaluate, and manage the current problems and treatment issues in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism.
