The hallmark of Winthrop-University Hospital's Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship is its access to uncommon as well as common endocrine disorders. The extraordinarily challenging case mix includes relatively large numbers of Prader-Willi Syndrome patients, growth hormone deficient patients, and those with intersex problems. The relationship between the clinical disorders and the underlying genetic causes is actively pursued by fellows as they rotate between clinical practice and the Endocrinology Laboratory. Our fellowship is a model of bench-to-bedside-to-bench exploration. In this strong academic environment, pediatric endocrinology fellows are encouraged to attend both national and international conferences, where they have presented research findings. Post fellowship graduates are routinely recruited to positions in academic medical centers.
A three-year fellowship emphasizing clinical skills as well as basic and clinical research. The fellow participates in the care of children and adolescents with a wide range of endocrine disorders, including: growth hormone deficiency, diabetes mellitus, thyroid diseases, adrenal and gonadal disorders, ambiguous genitalia and intersex problems, abnormal pubertal development and hirsutism.
