A central part of our Pediatric Endocrine and Diabetes fellowship is our NIH funded T32 training grant, providing fellows with outstanding training that will lead to successful, productive careers in clinical or basic Pediatric Endocrinology. Towards this, dedicated time during year 1 is spent on identifying research areas, and research mentors. The majority of years 2 and 3 will be spent in research, and clinical coverage and call is significantly reduced to accommodate this.

Trainees benefit from the outstanding faculty in the field of diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism in clinical and basic science departments throughout the University of Wisconsin and its successfully renewed NIH CTSA program. Our particular strengths include the study of diabetes, diabetes complications, epidemiology, obesity, nutrition, metabolic effects of pediatric fitness, adipose tissue development and site-specific deposition (by MRI), primate biology, and adipocyte biology.

Annual PAS/PES Meetings

Every year, all three pediatric endocrinology fellows attend the Pediatric Endocrine Society conference.

This is a great opportunity to present their hard work, network with other pediatric endocrinology programs, and learn about the cutting edge research in our field. It has also been a tradition to reunite with previous fellows and catch up over dinner at a new locale every year.
