We are a referral practice that provides care for all pediatric endocrine problems, in addition to offering several subspecialized clinics for patients with diabetes, Turner syndrome, bone disorders, disorders of sexual development, gender wellness, lipid disorders, and obesity comorbidities. These clinics are directed by experts in the field and provide in-depth learning opportunities for our fellows.
Our trainees are exposed to a full range of academic options to foster their career. As such, our curriculum includes significant committed time for academic endeavors.

These opportunities provide a rich training environment that fosters the development of leading physician researchers and academic clinicians within our field.
Our program offers academic lectures during training, including topic presentations, journal clubs, lectures from guest speakers, and board review. Our program has a close relationship with the UNC adult endocrine division, as well as a strong connection with other regional pediatric endocrine programs. This network provides an unparalleled alliance for clinical exposure, learning, and research collaborations.
