The Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman Fellowship Program provides support and funding for one Diabetes and Metabolism Fellow each year. This fellowship program was created through a generous gift given by the Dr. Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman New York Foundation for Medical Research, a charitable organization dedicated to empowering scientists and clinicians who are focused on improving health and curing disease.
The Friedman Fellowship Program has supported numerous fellows in our Division since 2000. These “Friedman Fellows” remain in the program for 2-3 years, depending on whether they are focusing on clinical care or research. Before our new fellows start each year, one Friedman Fellow is selected and notified of the special support that he or she will receive.
The Friedman Fellows carry on Dr. Gerald J. Friedman’s legacy of dedication and devotion to the health and wellbeing of patients with diabetes and metabolic disease. Dr. Friedman’s focus on using clinical practice and advancing knowledge through research and education mirrors the major tenets of the Medical Center and the values of our Friedman Fellows. As a reminder of this commitment to patient care and the advancement of knowledge, each Fellow is given a special certificate of recognition at the end of their training.
