Joint Program on Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Metabolism
The Joint Program on Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism is a single fellowship program across two distinct campuses of the LSU System, LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans and the Pennington Biomedical Center in Baton Rouge. The purpose of such a program is to enhance the research, education and medical care in diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism by aligning both institutions, so as to promote collaboration, facilitate sharing of resources, and avoiding duplication of efforts. The recognized research expertise in endocrinology and clinical research at PBRC has been aligned with the medical care provision and endocrinology fellowship education and training efforts existing at LSUHSC, thus creating a seamless Program on Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism.
The faculty of the joint endocrinology program are appointed to either or both institutions.
LSUHSC is pleased to offer two ACGME accredited fellowships for the Section on Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism.
We will be accepting applications for fellowship through the ERAS system. Applications may be submitted starting on July 1, with interviews typically held in September and October. Fellows enter the program on July 1, and training lasts 2 years.
Applicants should be United States Citizens, have Permanent Resident status, or have a J-1 Visa with at least two years remaining. Highly qualified graduates of medical schools outside of the United States are invited to apply. Fellows will be required to have a Louisiana Medical License.
