We are dedicated to training the next generation of physicians and scientists in the area of diabetes, endocrinology, metabolism, and nutrition.
Clinical Scholar Track for MDs
The clinical track is a two-year program that offers physicians extensive training to prepare for clinical leadership in academic endocrinology and patient care. Fellows receive training in inpatient and outpatient clinic sites in the Seattle area, and participate in both inpatient consults and a variety of outpatient clinics during both years of their fellowship training. All fellows on the clinical track are expected to complete a clinical research project guided by faculty mentors at the end of their second year.
Research Track for MDs
The research track is a three-year fellowship for physicians interested a more extensive research experience in either clinical or basic science. This is an excellent opportunity for trainees interested in an academic research career or a career in industry. The first year is focused on clinical training alongside the clinical track fellows while the second and third years concentrate on completion of a significant research project under a faculty mentor, while still participating in a weekly general endocrinology continuity clinic. Because the research portion (years 2 and 3) of the clinical-research training program is funded through the National Institutes of health, we are only able to consider those applicants who are U.S. citizens or those who have been admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence.
Alumni in both the clinical scholar and research tracks have moved onto successful careers as clinical endocrinologists, researchers, and academic faculty in the Pacific Northwest and across the nation. Division faculty are also very active in teaching medical students and residents.
