The advanced sub-specialty residency training program in endocrinology is a two-year program with three resident fellow positions at this time. The main goal of the teaching program of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism is to provide comprehensive instruction and training in the principles and practice of endocrinology and metabolism for physicians who have had suitable background training in Internal Medicine. During the first year of training, the program emphasis is on all clinical aspects, the second year emphasis is on research and other scholarly activities.
Our training program participates in the National Residency Matching Program for the subspecialties of Internal Medicine. To be eligible for a fellowship in the Endocrinology Training Program the candidate must be in an ACGME accredited program and prior to starting the fellowship, the candidate must complete three years of Internal Medicine in an ACGME accredited training program. We accept application for J-1 Visa holder, we currently do not accept H1-B Visa holder.
We currently have more than ten Endocrinology M.D. faculty members most of whom have sub-subspecialty expertise in specific areas. There are opportunities to be involved in research at MCC, JAH and in clinical research trials through the USF diabetes Center. These faculty members provide a wide range of expertise for mentoring and training fellows in the field of endocrinology, such as education, patient care and research.
Patient Care occurs in our affiliated hospitals (Tampa General Hospital, Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute and the James A. Haley (Tampa) VA Hospital) as well as elective clinical rotations in state-of-the-art ambulatory health care centers.
The Endocrinology Fellowship Program at the University of South Florida in Tampa is designed to prepare you for the broad practice of this subspecialty by providing excellent well-rounded training in clinical and research endocrinology and metabolism.
This training program will provide extensive supervised clinical training in different areas of the subspecialty of Endocrinology. The fellowship is designed to complement and supplement prior training in Internal Medicine and to provide in-depth basic and clinical knowledge and the highest level of professional competency in direct patient care and consultation in Endocrinology.
Our Program have six fellows in which they will be trained to master the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and competencies determined by the American Board of Internal Medicine and Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education to be essential for subspecialist physicians in Endocrinology.

The main goal of the teaching program of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism is to provide comprehensive instruction and training in the principles and practice of endocrinology and metabolism for physicians who have had suitable background training in Internal Medicine. Such training will prepare the Fellows to embark upon a lifelong career of providing expert comprehensive care in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of hormone secretion and metabolism. Such training will produce superior clinical endocrinologists, clinic investigators and basic scientists qualified to practice in an academic setting.
The Endocrinology and Metabolism Fellowship at the University of South Florida in Tampa is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
You will be eligible to take the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) subspecialty examination in Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases upon completion of the fellowship.
The Endocrinology and Metabolism Fellowship at the University of South Florida was established in 1975.
