Unity Hospital Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Fellowship


The primary location of our fellowship program is at Unity Hospital with rotations at clinical sites within Rochester Regional Health.

Over two years, fellows will be well trained in all areas of endocrinology and will gain expertise in thyroid ultrasounds and ultrasound guided thyroid fine needle aspirations. In addition, fellows will gain expertise in the use of all modalities of diabetes treatment, including insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring. Fellows will work with experts in bone and mineral metabolism and learn about bone density interpretation, and diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and parathyroid disorders. Our pituitary program receives referrals from the upstate New York area, and will provide fellows with the opportunity to manage patients with a wide variety of pituitary diseases, including the use of inferior petrosal sinus sampling and supervision of post-operative care. Fellows will also gain experience taking care of and prescribing cross-sex hormone therapy for transgender and gender non-conforming patients.

During the first year, the majority of time is spent in clinical activities either in the outpatient or inpatient setting. During the second year, more time is spent on outpatient clinical activities and research. The endocrine division aims to be a leader in clinical care in the area of diabetes, thyroid diseases, and bone and mineral metabolism. Fellows will participate in continuous improvement projects on quality and safety as well. 

We are seeking outstanding candidates who will grow and benefit from state-of-the-art training in endocrinology. Fellows will be well prepared for board certification in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism by the American Board of Internal Medicine and for independent practice upon graduation from the program.
