What to expect

  • A comprehensive clinical experience with the opportunity to treat diverse patients referred to the endocrinology practice and consultation service
  • An outpatient private practice experience conducted by the fellow as an associate of the faculty in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
  • The opportunity to serve as leader of the inpatient consultation service
  • An intensive diabetes clinical experience, including interactions with Certified Diabetes Educators at a nationally recognized diabetes education center.
  • A strong and in-depth focus on "state of the art" diabetes technology including the management of insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring.
  • Additional clinical experiences in ophthalmology, pediatric endocrinology, osteoporosis.
  • Nine months of protected research time.
  • An opportunity to learn the principles and treatment of obesity in an established Weight Management Program
  • Generous house staff benefits, including heavily subsidized housing and three complimentary meals per day.

Curriculum

The fellowship is a two year program:

First Year

The first year primarily focuses on training in clinical endocrinology with the goal of developing the skills and knowledge base required to skillfully manage patients with a variety of endocrine disorders. As leader of the inpatient endocrine consult service, the fellow takes responsibility for managing patients on the service under the close supervision of a faculty attending endocrinologist. Throughout both years, each fellow participates in his/her own continuity clinic consisting of 3 half-day sessions per week. The clinic is designed to run as the fellow's own private practice under close supervision by faculty attending endocrinologists. Fellows also have enhanced educational experiences in diabetes technology (TechMastery), osteoporosis/metabolic bone disease clinic, personalized "hands on" instruction in thyroid ultrasound and fine needle biopsy and pediatric endocrinology rotation. Fellows have the opportunity to learn about the integral role of diabetes self-management education by closely working with the staff at our nationally recognized Diabetes Education Center. Each incoming fellow will be enrolled in an online Certificate of Intensive Training in Motivational Interviewing. They will be taught how to appropriately choose and integrate Motivational Interviewing counseling interventions as an adjunct to their patient treatment plans. The Fellow is required to complete all components of the course to secure certification of intensive training. During the first year, each fellow is also expected to meet with faculty members to discuss, choose, and begin to plan a research project. This will enable the fellow to complete a scholarly project by the end of the second year.

Second Year

The second year focuses on further developing and enhancing the fellow's training in clinical endocrinology with greater in-depth exposure to endocrine subspecialties including: use of technology (insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors) in the management of patients with diabetes; obesity management; metabolic bone/osteoporosis treatment; pediatric endocrine rotation; and ophthalmology rotation. Additionally, the fellow participates in committees such as the Hospital Wide Insulin Safety Committee, which provides exposure to hospital systems and how they function. Outpatient continuity clinics continue throughout the second year while the focus shifts from inpatient management to research and completion of a scholarly project.

Clinical services and conferences

  • Inpatient endocrine consult service - Under the close supervision of a faculty attending endocrinologist, the fellow leads the inpatient consult service and is responsible for patient care. The fellow is also expected to be actively involved in the education of medicine residents and medical students who are participating in an endocrine elective rotation.
  • Outpatient endocrine continuity clinic - Under the supervision of a faculty attending endocrinologist, the fellow participates in 3 half day continuity clinics and is responsible for the management of patients with a variety of endocrine disorders. The clinic is designed to operate as the fellow's own private practice in an effort to enhance outpatient management skills and prepare for clinical practice upon graduation.
  • Specialty Rotations
    • Diabetes TechMastery - An intensive educational experience concerning in -depth study and use of technology for blood glucose management such as insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring.
    • Thyroid Ultrasound and FNA - Fellows are exposed to a broad range of thyroid diseases, thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer. With access to state of the art ultrasound machines and Simulation Center support, fellows gain experience performing diagnostic thyroid ultrasounds and ultrasound-guided FNA of thyroid nodules under the supervision of faculty endocrinologists.
    • Pediatric Endocrinology - Located in shared space in the newly constructed, state of the art facility, adult endocrinology fellows have the opportunity to work with our pediatric endocrine colleagues and gain exposure to pediatric endocrine disorders. The rotation includes opportunities to learn about dynamic endocrine testing performed in pediatric endocrinology and attend pediatric endocrine case conferences and journal clubs.
    • Ophthalmology - The curriculum for the ophthalmology rotation focuses on developing an in-depth understanding of diabetes-related eye disease including opportunities to participate in patient exams with exposure to retinal pathology.
    • Weight Management Program - The Weight Management program provides fellows the opportunity to participate in the medical supervision associated with low calorie, meal- replacement diets.
    • Metabolic Bone Disease/Osteoporosis - Once a month, fellows participate in a half day clinic session focused on patients with osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases. Similar to the outpatient continuity clinic, the fellow is primarily responsible for the evaluation and management of the patients under the close supervision of a faculty attending endocrinologist. NYU Winthrop's Bone Mineral Research Center is part of several NIH sponsored research trials. Both clinicians and patients benefit from having DXA scans performed by a highly experienced bone density technician. During fellowship training fellows will have individual didactic education given by the Bone Mineral Research Center personnel.
  • Weekly endocrine conference and journal club - Each week, members of the endocrine division participate in a variety of educational conferences including core content presentations, journal club, board review, and the multidisciplinary conferences listed below.
  • Multidisciplinary conferences - These conferences facilitate interaction with other specialties within the institution. Patient cases relevant to both disciplines are discussed in detail to promote enhanced patient care and education. Images and pathology slides are presented when applicable and the fellows have the opportunity to participate in interactive discussions regarding patient management.
    • Radiology

Resident and Student Education in Endocrinology

The Division offers residents and students an elective rotation in endocrinology. The elective offers experiences in outpatient endocrinology by seeing patients with different attending endocrinologists in their outpatient practices. Additionally, residents and students participate as part of the inpatient endocrine team. Activities include independent, supervised assessment of new consults and follow up patients with daily teaching rounds. Managing patients in both the outpatient and inpatient settings provides the residents and students with exposure to a wide variety of acute and chronic endocrine disorders including diabetes, thyroid disorders, metabolic bone disease, pituitary, adrenal, and reproductive diseases.

Patient Care

Providing outstanding clinical care with customized care plans individualized for each patient remains a top priority for our division, and we are proud to present an outstanding clinical team to meet that goal. Our division sees patients with a wide range of general endocrine disorders. In addition, we have faculty who specialize in the care of patients with diabetes, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, and obesity.
