To provide superior subspecialty training in endocrinology and metabolism utilizing a systematic approach in teaching, research and patient care to deliver competent independent subspecialists.
The UCLA-VA Endocrine fellowship program is designed to provide a two year advanced clinical training in the field of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism.
The goal of the program is to prepare trainees for a career in academic medicine and clinical endocrinology.
Faculty members of the Division have expertise in major areas of the specialty of Endocrine and Diabetes: thyroid, bone disorders, neuroendocrine tumor, pituitary and reproductive endocrinology. The Division has close collaboration with Pediatric Endocrinology, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Reproductive Endocrinology, Endocrine Surgery, Podiatry, Kidney Transplant Program and Pancreatic Transplant Surgery.
This wealth of talented faculty, in addition to the multiplicity of clinical experiences, and the economic, ethnic, and cultural diversity represented in this intergrated program offer tremendous opportunities for those seeking fellowship training in Los Angeles.
The overall goals and objectives of the training program are to meet the six general competencies common to all ACGME clinical training programs, as they apply to this subspecialty and to attain these incrementally, while simultaneously reducing the amount of supervision required, such that upon completion of the training program, the fellow is fully competent to serve as an independent subspecialist.
