Clinical 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 clinics across hospital and community sites in the Seattle area. Scholarly activity through clinical projects guided by faculty mentors is expected in the second year.
Research Track for MDs
The research track is a three-year fellowship for physicians interested in becoming physician scientists and is supported by National Institute of Health training grants.
The first year is focused on clinical training alongside the clinical track fellow while the second and third years concentrate on completion of a significant research project under the mentorship and supervision of a faculty mentor.
Fellows are expected to present their scholarly activities during the second and third years of their fellowship locally and when possible, at national meetings.
Because the research portion (years 2 and 3) of the clinical-research training program is federally funded (by NIH), we consider only those applicants who are U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals of the U.S. or those who have been admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence.
Alumni in both the clinical 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.
