|Diabetes Preceptorship at NIH|
Endocrine Aspects of Neoplasia, Metabolism and Diabetes
The Preceptorial in Endocrine Aspects of Neoplasia, Metabolism and Diabetes, sponsored by the Endocrine Fellows Foundation, is conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The NIH Clinical Center is the world’s largest clinical research complex housing some of the most extensive and highly regarded research facilities, including a 242 bed hospital dedicated to outstanding patient care.
Faculty members include: Drs. Lynnette Nieman, Phil Gorden, Lee Weinstein, Bill Simonds, Michael Collins, Karel Pacak, Constantine Stratakis, Ranganath Munniyappa, Jack Yanovski and Marc Reitman.
The fellows who are selected to participate in this program will gain experience in caring for patients with the aforementioned disorders and learn about clinical investigation within the NIH Clinical Center. In addition, fellows will be able to meet physicians working for the US Food and Drug Administration where discussion of investigational drug applications will be reviewed. Fellows will also participate in all Inter-Institute Training program didactic sessions including faculty and fellow lectures, patient rounds, journal club and clinic conferences which boast intense clinical case discussions. Last, it may be possible for some fellows to volunteer for one-time studies where they will learn what it is like to be a human subject for research.
