Welcome to the Division of Endocrinology and the Endocrinology and Metabolism Training Program at the USF Health College of Medicine
The advanced sub-specialty residency training program in endocrinology is a two-year program with three resident fellow positions each year. 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 makes emphasis general aspects of clinical endocrinology, the second year makes emphasis in more specialized endocrinology training, scholarly activities, leading roles, procedures such as thyroid Biopsy, more independence of senior fellows from faculties and more supervision of senior fellows of other trainees.
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 about twenty Endocrinology faculty members between the three sites who have sub-subspecialty expertise in different 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.
