All fellows are expected to complete several scholarly projects during their training. We encourage fellows to submit abstracts to various national meetings, with most trainees attending the Endocrine Society meetings or American Diabetes Association annual meeting as well as several local meetings.

Clinical fellows

Clinical fellows will typically complete chart review projects or quality improvement projects to gain a better understanding of best clinical practices. These projects have a strong clinical focus and can result in changes to our day-to-day practice of endocrinology at the University of Washington.  Past fellow projects have included studies in numerous areas: 

  • Inpatient diabetes management 
  • Laboratory diagnosis of endocrine disorders 
  • Use of technology in management of diabetes 
  • Evaluation and management of thyroid nodules 
  • Improving access to diabetes care
  • Developing educational programs for patients and providers 

Research fellows

Research fellows have projects focused on the discovery of new ideas and new approaches to endocrinology. This can be through basic science research, clinical research, health disparities and public health research or educational scholarship. Areas of research in our division that can support a research fellow generally include, but are not limited to: 

  • Studies of male hormonal contraception  
  • Evaluation and management of NASH 
  • Inpatient diabetes management
  • Metabolic complications of lipodystrophy
  • Registry studies of type 1 diabetes 
  • Thyroid cancer survivorship studies
