This one-of-a-kind Osteoporosis, Bone and Mineral Diseases Fellowship (pdf), is a one-year, clinically-oriented training program designed to allow the fellow to become expert in the diagnosis and management of metabolic disorders affecting the skeleton, and to engage in skeletal research.
This program is managed by the Division of Bone and Mineral Diseases under the aegis of the Skeletal Disorders Training Program; and it is based on clinic rotations through the Bone Health Program and other interdisciplinary clinics, and on other training activities, including diagnostic procedures used for metabolic skeletal disorders, coursework, case discussion, lectures and presentations. Trainee involvement in translational or clinical research projects is also encouraged.
At this time, this training program is not ACGME accredited. It is targeted to Endocrine or Rheumatology fellows (or fellows from other specialties) who, at the end of their training program, would like to deepen and master their skills in metabolic bone disorders and become experts in this specialty. Internal medicine residents are also welcome to apply.
