The University of Pennsylvania Rodebaugh Diabetes Center Clinical Diabetes Fellowship is a one-year clinical fellowship offered over the academic year starting on July 1st, 2019. The diabetes fellow will be appointed a clinical Instructor position. This fellowship is not ACGME accredited and does not participate in the match.
Goals and Objectives
Diabetes is currently reaching epidemic proportions in the United States with approximately 30 million persons affected in this country. Primary care physicians manage over 90% of patients with diabetes. Formal training in diabetes care is restricted to endocrinology fellowship programs with few exceptions.
To better prepare primary care physicians to manage this growing and complex patient population, the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine’s Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism is now accepting applicants for a one-year clinical diabetes fellowship program at the Penn Rodebaugh Diabetes Center. This program is open to candidates who have successfully completed training in Internal Medicine or Med-Peds and are board certified or board eligible in Internal Medicine.
Diabetes fellows train in the management of all types of adult diabetes patients. The fellowship includes additional training in nutrition, obesity, lipid disorders, hypertension, inpatient diabetes management, gestational diabetes, diabetes in pregnancy, insulin pumps, sensors, bariatric and geriatric diabetes. The diabetes fellow will spend one year as an instructor in Internal Medicine with a competitive salary and benefits. The Penn Rodebaugh adult endocrinologists provide state of the art preceptorship in both the outpatient and inpatient setting at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Eligibility and Requirements
Candidates must have successfully completed training in Internal Medicine or Med-Peds and are board certified or board eligible in Internal Medicine. Interested candidates should apply by submitting a resume, letter of interest, copy of medical school transcript and three letters of recommendation (one letter from the applicant’s residency program director and two letters from supervising faculty members) to the Diabetes Fellowship Program Director and Diabetes Fellowship Program Coordinator.
