We are partnering with the Pediatric Endocrinology program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital to offer a combined fellowship program in endocrinology which would last 4 years. A focus of this track includes the transition of care of pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes and other endocrinologic disorders to adult endocrine clinic. Enclosed is a sample pediatric endocrinology fellowship block diagram of the structure across 4 years. From the OSU perspective, this is considered a track within an ACGME-sponsored 2 year clinical fellowship program.
