The three-year Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, trains pediatricians for subspecialty clinical practice, teaching, or research. Depending on the chosen path, your educational experience is tailored accordingly.
Strengths of the fellowship include:
- Personalized clinical training working one-on-one with individual faculty members
- Opportunities for individuals interested in endocrine research as well as clinical pediatric endocrinology
- A mix of patients spanning the spectrum of pediatric endocrine disease
- Guaranteed three years of funding
The Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Education.
Graduates are qualified to sit for the pediatric endocrinology subspecialty certification examination offered by the American Board of Pediatrics.
The Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic began in the mid-1960s. Since that time, more than 35 fellows have completed training. It is anticipated that one fellow will complete this fellowship annually.
I was looking for a program with ample opportunities for excelling at both clinical care and research. The flexibility of the curriculum allows me to tailor my fellowship time to meet my professional goals. I also noticed that Mayo had a nice mix of patients, local and international, which would enhance learning. Fellows leave the program with experience managing a wide variety of common and rare endocrine diseases, which prepares them for any type of practice.

The Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship has a track record of more than 30 years training pediatric endocrine fellows. We are also fortunate to have close ties with over 40 adult endocrinologists working at Mayo as well as an Endocrine Research Unit with opportunities to work with cutting-edge researchers.
