Endocrinology Fellowships

Requirements for Fellowship Training

Requirements for Fellowship Training in Pediatric Endocrinology

1) Residency Training – prospective fellows must provide evidence of either:

a) successful completion of training in an ACGME accredited residency training program in pediatrics
or
b) If the prospective fellow is a graduate of a non-U.S. medical school (a Foreign Medical Graduate, FMG) they must have successfully completed training in pediatrics comparable to that of an ACGME accredited residency training program. This training (medical school and residency training) must be approved
by the credentialing office of the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

2) Citizenship – prospective fellows must either have

a) U.S. Citizenship
or
b) A valid U.S. Visa allowing fellowship training

i. Note, however, that the second and third years of pediatric endocrine fellowship training at Johns Hopkins are supported by a Training Grant from the National Institutes of Health. This grant is only able to support trainees who are U.S. citizens (or have permanent resident status). Therefore, although we can occasionally accept and support a trainee who is not a U.S citizen, most of our trainees are U.S. citizens. In some cases, we have been able to accept into our training program applicants who were not U.S. citizens, but who were able to get financial support for their training from an outside source (typically their country of origin.)

3) Training Grant Support

a) The second and third years of pediatric endocrine fellowship training at Johns Hopkins are supported by a Training Grant from the National Institutes of Health. Therefore, unless other support is identified and agreed upon, fellows must be eligible for support by the Training Grant (see above). In addition, fellows must be willing to agree to the “pay back” requirements of the NIH training grant (see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-02-109.html).

Requirements for promotion to second year of fellowship training:

a) successful completion of the first year of fellowship training as documented by end of year evaluations. Subspecialty residents are required to achieve an average evaluation (based on all faculty evaluations) of at least satisfactory (a “4” on the 9-point scale) on all measures.

Requirements for promotion to the third year of fellowship training:

a) successful completion of the second year of fellowship training as documented by end-of year evaluations. Subspecialty residents are required to achieve an average evaluation (based on all faculty evaluations) of at least satisfactory (a “4” on the 9-point scale) on all measures.
