Program Overview

Duke Endocrinology fellows making friends at the 2024 North Carolina Endocrinology Fellows' Conference, held at the Duke Molecular Physiology Institute; this annual gathering brings together Endo fellows from programs across NC.

Duke University Medical Center, our program’s primary training site, is perennially ranked as one of the nation’s best hospitals. Our fellows have the opportunity to collaborate with outstanding clinical faculty, researchers, and trainees across specialties, and Duke draws patients from across the South and beyond, creating an unsurpassed training experience. Please refer to the Duke Graduate Medical Education and Duke Health websites for additional general information on graduate medical education at Duke.

Duke’s Division of Endocrinology is internationally renowned, and our fellows train in a rigorous yet supportive environment with world-class clinical and research faculty. Our division has over 30 core teaching faculty, including experts in all Endocrinology subspecialties. Fellows receive broad inpatient and outpatient exposure to all areas of Endocrinology, including diabetes, thyroid functional disorders, thyroid cancer, adrenal disorders, pituitary disorders, disorders of bone and calcium metabolism, dyslipidemia, sodium disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome, and many more. Fellows also have ample opportunity to gain proficiency in procedural aspects of Endocrinology, including through a dedicated fellow thyroid ultrasound clinic.

Our faculty members also have a broad variety of research interests, which generates countless opportunities for fellows to engage in mentored clinical, translational, and basic research. Additionally, our Division has close ties to multiple research centers within Duke, creating further opportunities for fellows to engage in interdisciplinary research. Collaborating research centers include:

Our fellowship training program comprises a 2-year Clinical Track and a 3-year Research Track. We are currently recruiting for both tracks, and prospective trainees may apply to either or both. See Training & Curriculum for additional details.
