Connecticut Children’s is the main teaching hospital for the University of Connecticut School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics. Over the course of a three-year fellowship program, fellows receive superior education and training that combines hands-on, supervised inpatient and outpatient care experiences with weekly academic sessions and online curricular resources.
We are excited to introduce you to the Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine and Connecticut Children’s!
The Connecticut Children’s Division of Endocrinology has been ranked in the 2019-2020 U.S. News & World Report as a “Best Children’s Hospital”. Our inpatient clinical activities are based at Connecticut Children's, the only free-standing full-service children's hospital in the state of CT, which is located in Hartford, in addition to Neonatal Intensive Care Units in Hartford and Farmington. A portion of our outpatient programs are at the main campus, but the division’s primary home is at Connecticut Children’s stand-alone ambulatory center in Farmington, which is a short drive from the main campus.
Our academic Department of Pediatrics, as well as our robust research institution, is housed within the University of Connecticut School of Medicine in Farmington.
Our fellowship in pediatric endocrinology is three years in duration and has been designed to meet the requirements of the subspecialty board in pediatric endocrinology of the American Board of Pediatrics. The primary focus of the first year is clinical with dedicated time during the year to develop a research focus and identify a research mentor. The second year is largely focused on the major clinical, translational and/or basic science research project under the mentorship of accomplished faculty who are based at Connecticut Children’s or through UConn Health. There are opportunities in the third, and final year, of the fellowship, to tailor the schedule to best fit the individual fellow’s career goals and develop more specific expertise in a particular area of endocrinology.
Our program provides a balance of excellent clinical training and research to prepare graduates for successful careers in pediatric endocrinology, whether academic or private practice.
Diversity and inclusion are foundational elements of the University of Connecticut Pediatric Fellowship Programs at Connecticut Children’s. Consistent with this focus we pursue diversity in all its varied expressions, including but not limited to, gender, race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, and gender identity; with the goal of providing an educational environment that fosters the success of learners who are representative of the population of Connecticut, and a clinical environment that provides high quality healthcare to the myriad communities of the State.
On behalf of our faculty and staff, we thank you for your interest in our Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship Program, and encourage you to learn more about why you should pursue your endocrinology training at Connecticut Children’s!
