EFF is an organization dedicated to the career development of fellows in training and nascent young investigators. Our vision is through preceptorships, symposiums, and research grant support. We support trainees in endocrinology to further advance their career goals and to strengthen our subspecialty.
Enhancing the knowledge base addressing emerging content areas during the fellowship training period. Fostering new thought leader development to address current and future gaps in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism. Bridging the gap between the completion of a fellowship program and a future career in academia, research, or clinical practice.
Diabetes Research Forum
A Continuing Medical Education Program for Junior Faculty and Fellows organized in conjunction with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Fellows present their fellowship projects to experts of the field who provide feedback and valuable critiques. Expert faculty also present on trending topics in Diabetes.
Held at the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center at Columbia University the program exposes fellows to a diverse scope of diabetes mellitus research initiatives and cutting-edge clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. Fellows gain valuable insight from the faculty’s experience in a vigorous clinical research program as well as in an active practice.
Held at the Columbia University Medical Center, Division of Endocrinology the program provides fellows an in-depth exposure to metabolic bone diseases through clinical case discussions, journal club, and research seminars. The discipline of clinical investigation is introduced along with individual tutorials on protocol design, acquisition, interpretation of data, and statistical testing.
