Welcome to the Duke Pediatric Endocrinology fellowship program.
The overall objectives of the program are four-fold:
- To insure that each trainee is provided the background and experience necessary to diagnose and manage the panoply of childhood hormonal and metabolic disorders intrinsic to the field of pediatric endocrinology;
- To insure that trainees develop expertise in fundamental techniques of modern molecular and cellular endocrinology;
- To provide each fellow the opportunity to explore a research project in depth and to present the results of that research in oral and written form; and
- To inculcate a refined professionalism that enables the fellow to communicate effectively and sympathetically with patients, their families and other health care providers, to respect confidentiality, and to avoid conflicts of interest.
