Dear Applicants,

Welcome to the University of Washington Endocrinology Fellowship! We are thrilled you are interested in learning more about our program and have designed our website to give you an orientation to our program and  answer common questions you may have. We are also planning an information session on July 13, 4-5pm PST and hope you will consider joining us.  To be contacted for more information, please email Alex Stoller, Fellowship Administrator at as52@uw.edu.

We offer two distinct fellowship tracks -- a 2-year clinical scholar track for physicians interested in academic or community based clinical practice, and a 3-year research track for physicians interested in a more extensive research experience, with aspirations for an academic research career or career in industry. Both tracks provide opportunity for personalization of the training experience to fit trainees’ interests, as well as ample time to pursue scholarly projects.

Our fellows divide their time among three hospitals: the University of Washington Medical Center (academic medical center), Harborview Medical Center (county hospital), and the Puget Sound Veterans Affairs Health Care System. These centers provide care for patients from throughout the Pacific Northwest. This gives our fellows a unique educational experience, with the opportunity to care for a diverse population, including patients from the agricultural areas of eastern Washington to the rural villages of Alaska to our urban core in Seattle. Our trainees gain experience with all aspects of endocrinology and have moved on to careers in both academic medicine and community practice.

In addition to unparalleled clinical experiences, our fellows have the distinct advantage of working with our outstanding faculty. Our faculty are not only passionate about the patients they care for, but view teaching as one of the central pillars of their work here and enjoy working with our fellows as both clinical and research mentors.  Our graduates consistently note our faculty as being one of the highlights of our training program.

As program director, I am very invested in the quality of training we provide our fellows. I hope that you will consider our program as you are looking at potential training sites, and please reach out if you have any questions. We are all looking forward to meeting you virtually, very soon!
