This two-year fellowship in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center provides extensive inpatient and outpatient experiences at the PGY-4 and PGY-5 levels. It is designed to provide advanced training and experience to those who anticipate the clinical practice of this specialty, those who expect to function as clinician-educators, and those who intend to pursue careers in clinical endocrine research.
We have two endocrine fellows at any one time. Fellows receive training in all aspects of endocrinology including:
- Thyroid disorders
- Neuroendocrine disorders
- Male and female reproductive endocrine disorders
- Sexual dysfunction
- Metabolic bone disease
- Adrenal disorders
- Disorders of fluid and electrolytes
- Disorders of calcium metabolism
- Endocrine emergencies
- Lipid disorders
- Nutritional disorders
Fellows gain experience in all aspects of diabetes and its complications. They manage pregnant women with diabetes and are also exposed to other endocrine disorders associated with pregnancy. Our endocrine fellows are actively involved in our insulin pump program.
We practice a multidisciplinary approach to obesity, which involves endocrinologists, dieticians, psychiatry and behavioral medicine staff, and surgeons who perform bariatric surgery.
Fellows spend the bulk of their time at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center in Burlington. They also attend a subspecialty clinic at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center in Peabody and rotate through Tufts Floating Hospital for Children in Boston for their Pediatric Endocrine experience.
