Endocrinology Fellowship Conferences

Conferences are held throughout the years of training and are focused on supplementing clinical and research training in the program. The required scheduled conferences include the following:

  • Didactic lectures - given weekly by faculty members during the first three months of each academic year covering approaches and overview of specific topics in the field.
  • Clinical Care conference - this conference is run by fellows who present unusual and complexes cases they encountered during training. Other trainees in attendance as well the faculty provide feedback, suggestions and additional discussion.
  • Weekly Endocrine Grand Rounds - each trainee will present on a topic of their choosing once a year. The material is reviewed ahead of the presentation date by the program director who provides guidance and oversight. The rest of the sessions for grand rounds are given by faculty and invited speakers from different departments and/ or institutions.
  • Journal Club - weekly conference where a trainee reviews an article and provides critique of the publication. Several faculty members attend this activity along with all trainees who are expected to be active participants in the discussion.
Additional conferences are available for those interested but are not required. These include: weekly Pediatric Endocrine conference, research conferences, weekly Morbidity & Mortality conference and Grand Rounds by the Department of Medicine.
