Program Director’s Welcome

The University of Miami/Jackson Health System Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship provides physicians in training a robust clinical and research experience. Drawing from an ethnically and culturally diverse local community, as well as residents and visitors from the Caribbean and Latin America, our faculty and fellows care for children with a broad range of backgrounds and clinical conditions.

The excellence of our program’s clinical care is nationally recognized by U.S. News & World Report. Our faculty’s broad range of interest and expertise include disorders associated with bone disease; growth; sexual development, thyroid cancer and type 1 diabetes mellitus. Clinical training of fellows is enhanced by a formal educational program with three didactic seminars each week. In addition, fellows are encouraged to attend departmental and university seminars including the Fellows Developmental Lecture Series designed to promote career training in academic medicine.

Opportunities for clinical and laboratory research represent a major strength of the program, and fellows have a track record of success with numerous publications and presentations at both national and international conferences.
