Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Fellowship

Endocrinology Training in Inpatient and Outpatient Care

The Endocrinology Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited training program in both inpatient and outpatient care. Fellows develop diagnostic and therapeutic plans, provide outpatient follow-up and act as endocrinology consultant. Fellows help manage acute diabetes, and related complications, as well as thyroid, pituitary, parathyroid, adrenal and other disorders.

The medical endocrinologists at our Torrey Pines campus see 250-300 patients each month. Fellows are included in the most instructive consultations, ensuring broad exposure to a range of conditions. Related medical specialties, such as podiatry, nephrology, neurology and ophthalmology, are located on-site.

Fellows have mandatory rotations in the Weight Management Clinic, the Pediatric Endocrinology Clinic and at Rady Children’s Hospital. They also consult at the Lipid Management Clinic and the Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute, Scripps’ comprehensive diabetes education program.

Fellows also conduct clinical research, recruiting and counseling patients and analyzing study results. Trainees have basic research opportunities at UC San Diego and The Scripps Research Institute. Learn more about current clinical trials.
