Training & Didactic Teaching

The division offers two positions each academic year for a two-year clinical fellowship training program. In addition to daily teaching rounds and supervised outpatient clinics, there are regularly scheduled weekly Endocrinology Grand Rounds, weekly case presentations, monthly bone densitometry practicums, monthly evidence based medicine conferences, monthly Journal Clubs, monthly joint adult/pediatric endocrinology conferences, and monthly quality improvement conferences. A one-month rotation in Pediatric Endocrinology and a one-month rotation in Reproductive Endocrinology/High Risk Obstetrics are assigned during Year 1 and Year 2 respectively.

The Endocrinology core curriculum is delivered as a 12-week lecture series at the beginning of each academic year, and supplemented with daily didactic lectures. Endocrinology faculty and fellows participate in the general internal medicine training program at the University Hospital and Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The division contributes to medical education in the community through Internal Medicine Grand Rounds, invited symposium, diabetes and endocrinology symposia, and participates in the St. Louis City Wide Endocrinology lecture series.
