The Fellowship Training Program in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at the Tufts Medical Center, the major teaching hospital affiliate of Tufts University School of Medicine, provides support and funding for two Fellows each year.
This program is designed to fulfill the needs of those hoping to engage in clinical practice, become clinician-educators, or pursue careers in clinical and/or basic endocrine research. It will equip trainees with the knowledge, skills, attitude and experience required in this field.
The program offers both clinical and research training tracks. The clinical track is a 2-year program during which the entire first year is devoted to clinical activities and the second year to both clinical and research activities. The research track is a 3-year program in which the main portions of the second and third years are devoted to research.
Generally, one fellow is selected each year to be a part of the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman Fellowship Program, which provides support for the fellow throughout their training. Fellows are chosen for this program based on their dedication to clinical practice, education and research in diabetes and metabolic disease.
