What Our Fellows Say

"There are attendings who are experts in every area of endocrinology, yet they are all well versed in general endocrinology too. This makes our conferences fun and interactive, and really benefits our education. There is a nice range of conferences from case presentations to journal clubs, to didactic learning covering all the topics within endocrinology. You can tell how much each and every attending cares about the growth of the fellows, because they all attend, and eagerly participate in, all of our conferences."
