Welcome to the Endocrine Fellows Foundation Website. Each year we host a variety of educational programs geared towards Endocrinology Fellows. Below is a quick synopsis of our current programming. Click on the program title to view further details.
This forums focus is on Diabetes, Obesity, and Metabolism. Attendees to this forum were applicants to EFF's grant program and occasionally we take additional applications. The EFF Research Meeting is a Continuing Medical Education Program for Junior Faculty and Fellows organized in conjunction with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. The program is typically held the last weekend of January in Texas.
This one week preceptorship is held at Columbia University and will consist of regular conferences replete with clinical case discussions, journal club, and research seminars. The preceptorial will also emphasize heavily the clinical approach to the patient with diabetes and obesity. The diagnostic and therapeutic approach to a wide variety of clinical problems will be reviewed case by case with the fellow. During the one-week training period, there will be many opportunities to have discussions with many members of the faculty.
Metabolic Bone Disease
This day and a half program offers a unique experience not only to meet some of the most renowned bone experts in the world, however also the opportunity to network with other Metabolic Bone Diseases specialists. With small sessions there are ample opportunities to speak with faculty about trends and hot topics. This program is always held in the days leading up to ASBMR. We typically accept between 60-80 fellows from across the world.
This two week intensive training program occurs at Columbia University under the direction of Dr. John Bilezikian. During this time fellows are provided an opportunity to learn from experts in the field. The faculty engages in a vigorous clinical research program as well as in an active practice. Their expertise extends also to more fundamental research initiatives in the mechanisms of calciotropic hormone action and bone cell biology. Diagnostic and therapeutic approaches used by the group are on the cutting edge of the field, and in many instances, have been defined by their efforts. This program is always in the spring and we accept 12 fellows from across the country.
