PES Visiting Fellowship Program in October 2018 at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC)!
This intensive two-week educational program if offered to four PES members who are 2nd or 3rd-year North American pediatric endocrinology fellows (including Canada).
CCHMC and the program:
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) is a major tertiary and quaternary pediatric health care institution with national and international recognition, and is the Department of Pediatrics for the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine. The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology at CCHMC consists of clinical and academic pediatric endocrinologists (13 FTE’s), PhD scientists (5), post-docs (4), graduates students (6), research nurses (3), endocrine nurses (6), and a diabetes education team (7 RDs, 5 MSWs, 9 CDEs). The faculty holds over $2M in grant support (NIH, Industry). The endocrine division currently supports a three year ACGME-accredited fellowship program for 10-12 fellows (3 or 4 fellows per year) with the option of a 4th year for intensive basic or clinical research training. Many fellows seeking careers in clinical research obtain a Master’s Degree in Epidemiology and Biostatics or receive formal academic training in quality improvement through CCHMC’s James M Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence. Although most of the clinical education and scholastic activities for the fellows occur under the supervision and mentorship of the endocrinology faculty, there are close collaborations with several other divisions at CCHMC and UC. For example, both the Human Genetics and Adolescent Medicine Divisions are led by pediatric endocrinologists (Drs. Muglia and Gordon, respectively), facilitating interdivisional collaboration. Over 90% of the graduates hold academic positions with several graduates serving as division chief and one as department chair.
