Curriculum


The fellowship curriculum is structured so that eligibility to take the ABIM Board Certification in Endocrinology, Diabetes, & Metabolism can be obtained in 24 months. An optional third year provides additional research training for those pursing an academic career. The fellowship program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

The following links summarize the curriculum:

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.
