A Message from the Program Director

UVM Medical Center, the teaching hospital for the University of Vermont College of Medicine, offers a two-year fellowship training program in Diabetes and Endocrinology under the auspices of the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism in the Department of Medicine.

The training program is accredited by the Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, and provides eligibility for certification in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism from the American Board of Internal Medicine following completion. It is designed for physicians who are interested in a career in academic endocrinology, and includes opportunities for advanced study in nutrition, human metabolism research techniques, and basic sciences. Usually, one fellow is taken into the program each year.

The Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism outpatient program covers the full spectrum of endocrine services. It is based at 62 Tilley Drive in South Burlington and operates from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, seeing approximately 14,000 outpatients per year.

The Endocrinology and Diabetes clinic provides comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for pituitary, adrenal, parathyroid, and thyroid diseases, including fine needle thyroid aspiration and thyroid ultrasound.

There is a close working relationship with Pathology, Nuclear Medicine, and specialty surgical services, which makes for a smooth flow between preoperative testing and operative/postoperative management in persons with thyroid cancer and endocrine tumors.
