As trainees proceed through our program, it is expected they will actively engage in the process of their own education. To enhance educational skills of trainees, each pediatric endocrinology fellow is required to give four to six didactic presentations (e.g., review a clinical topic, etc.) and/or research updates annually.
Pediatric Endocrinology Division Conferences (required)
- Purpose. Presentation of interesting or challenging clinical cases, fellow or resident presentation of a didactic session, and/or journal club.
Endocrine Conference (required)
- Purpose. Didactic lectures on various topics.
Clinical Endocrine Conference (expected) (time slot competes with core curriculum see below, some are required)
- Purpose. Review of Internal Medicine Endocrinology Cases (3 weeks per month), Pediatric Endocrinology cases (bimonthly), or Endocrine Pathology (monthly). The pediatric Endocrinology Fellow presents all cases at the bimonthly pediatric case conference.
Pediatric Fellows' Core Curriculum Conference (expected)
- Purpose. To cover ABP required topics and provide each fellow with an opportunity to present their research.
Pediatric Grand Rounds (optional)

In addition to these conferences and seminars, there are additional educational offerings provided by other departments, e.g., Ob-Gyn and Internal Medicine Grand Rounds.
