Elective Rotations for Residents and Clinical Fellows

Elective Description

The resident rotation in Pediatric Endocrinology is designed for second- and third-year residents with an interest in fellowship training in Pediatric Endocrinology, who have plans to pursue a career in academic medicine. During the rotation, the resident will have the opportunity to attend a number of conferences and scholarly lectures, which will include patient management conferences, academic conferences on various pediatric endocrinology topics, and lectures by invited speakers. Many of the residents will be provided with an opportunity to be involved in medical scientific writing such as abstracts for scientific meetings, invited manuscripts and book chapters. Clinical experience during the rotation will include the discussion of outpatient, inpatient and clinical research management of pediatric endocrinology patients during patient management conferences.
