“SACM is pleased to announce available positions for our students/doctors at GWU. Please see the below detailed description for the clinical fellowships training program in the department of medicine, divisions of endocrinology and rheumatology at GWU”
Endocrinology Fellowship Training:
The fellowship training program offers two years of training in endocrinology, metabolism, and diabetes and prepares physicians for Endocrine Board eligibility. Elective training is provided in pediatric endocrinology and fertility-sterility. The program is designed to train fellows in both clinical and academic endocrinology. All fellows are expected to pursue and complete research topics of their choice, under the guidance of one or more faculty members; these projects have a strong clinical orientation. The research interests of divisional members include calcium and phosphate metabolism, adrenal pathophysiology, thyroid hormone physiology, pituitary function and growth hormone physiology, as well as disorders of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, reproductive endocrinology and the endocrinology of cancer. The division actively cooperates with other clinical and basic disciplines within the medical center, including the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the Endocrine Fertility and Sterility Program, the Lipid Research facilities, the Department of Urology, the Department of Physiology and the Department of Pediatric Endocrinology.
Rheumatology Fellowship Training:
The Division of Rheumatology fellowship offers a two-year advanced medical training program fully accredited by the ACGME. In the recent past, fellows completing this program have all passed their board certifications and have gone on to both academic and private practice opportunities. The fellowship provides an active teaching program covering the clinical, diagnostic laboratory, and research aspects of rheumatology. House officers are closely supervised by attending faculty, and trainees learn how to clinically assess and manage patients with musculoskeletal complaints. The division has didactic seminars including journal club, clinical conference, research conference, radiology conference and interdepartmental conferences with orthopedics, pathology, and rehabilitation. In addition there are city-wide clinical rheumatology conferences. For more details and information; please contact Janan Sarkis
