Beth Israel Deaconess/Joslin Diabetes Center
The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Endocrinology Division and the Joslin Diabetes Center have a unified three year fellowship program that provides clinical and research training to physicians who are pursuing a career in academic endocrinology.
General Program Structure
The first year is typically devoted to fulfilling the ABIM and ACGME clinical training requirements. The clinical year is also known as the Longwood Area Training program due to the collaboration with Harvard-affiliated hospitals in the Longwood Medical Area. It involves intensive inpatient and outpatient clinical rotations at the BIDMC, the Joslin Diabetes Center, the Brigham and Women's Hospital, and the Children's Hospital.
The second and third year of training will be devoted to laboratory or a combination of laboratory and clinical investigation and will include continuity clinics, a broad array of lectures and conferences, and major research experience in one of the division laboratories or a related lab in the area. The research opportunities are numerous and varied, as they reflect the research interests of the Endocrine Division faculty.
All trainees will follow a rigorous course of training, with close supervision by their mentors, supplemented by the many and varied scientific and educational resources available not only within Beth Israel Deaconess, but throughout the Longwood / Harvard Medical Area.
