About the Program

The Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism fellowship program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is a fully accredited two year program designed to prepare trainees for competence in academic as well as clinical careers. Through clinical rotations, research and conferences, trainees gain experience in the pathophysiology, evaluation and treatment of a broad spectrum of endocrine disease, including adrenal, bone and mineral, diabetes, gonadal, lipid, neuroendocrine, obesity, pancreatic, pituitary and thyroid disease in adult patients.


The fellowship curriculum is structured so that eligibility to take the ABIM Board Certification in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism can be obtained in 24 months. An optional third year provides additional research training for those pursing an academic career. The fellowship program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

We are partnering with the Pediatric Endocrinology program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital to offer a combined fellowship program in endocrinology which would last 4 years. A focus of this track includes the transition of care of pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes and other endocrinologic disorders to adult endocrine clinic. From the OSU perspective, this is considered a track within an ACGME-sponsored 2 year clinical fellowship program.

Clinical Training


Outpatient Clinics

Endocrinology fellows function as the primary provider to outpatients seen in Fellow’s Continuity Clinic, which provides a supervised general endocrinology experience. In addition fellows rotate through various Attending Clinics with subspecialty focus, including disorders of adrenal, bone & mineral, diabetes, lipid, obesity, pituitary, and thyroid. Thus fellows receive experiences to evaluate and manage a broad spectrum of endocrine diseases.

Pediatric and reproductive endocrinology rotations are provided through arrangement with Nationwide Children's Hospital and Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
