At UNC the faculty and staff within the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism are dedicated to training the next generation of outstanding endocrinologists. Upon completion of training, our fellows pursue a variety of career pathways. Following graduation, most graduates engage in academic or community clinical practice. We have a strong track record of preparing future clinical educators who pursue academic faculty positions and become clinical leaders in the field. With a broad range of vibrant diabetes and endocrine focused research happening across the UNC Chapel Hill campus, we are well equipped to mentor and train fellows interested in pursuing a physician scientist career pathway. Typically, our fellows spend two years with us, however in certain instances a third year of fellowship training is an option for those who desire a career in research.
