Endocrinology & Metabolism Fellowship Program

Welcome to the Fellowship Program in Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University of Virginia! These webpages contain a general overview of our training program, a partial description of available clinical and research facilities, and a brief introduction to program leadership.

If you are interested in a fellowship position, applications are accepted starting July 1st through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Interviews will occur from mid-August to the end of October, and decisions are made via the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) for endocrinology subspecialty programs. If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact our program coordinator.

Impact of COVID-19 on our 2020 fellowship recruitment season (for positions starting July 2021) [updated June 17, 2020]: Given disruptions associated with COVID-19, endocrinology fellowship programs will not have access to ERAS applications until August 12, 2020. We therefore plan to extend interview invitations starting mid-August. Since some candidates may have difficulty completing their ERAS applications by August 12th, we will continue to monitor for incoming ERAS applications – and we will continue to extend interview invitations – throughout September and October. In accordance with recently released NRMP guidelines, all  of our interviews will be virtual/teleconference interviews for the 2020 interview season.

The UVA Endocrinology and Metabolism Fellowship Program’s response to the events of the weekend of August 12, 2017: Compassion and inclusion are among our most important core values; and we reject hate and intolerance as contrary to those values. We emphatically confirm all persons’ right to live, learn, and receive medical care in an environment that is free of discrimination, intimidation, and fear. Our training program, division, and clinics are safe places for all persons regardless of age, race/ethnicity, national/ethnic origin, religion, gender identity, or sexual orientation. We cherish and encourage diversity among our physicians, fellows, residents, and students; we explicitly recognize that diversity makes us better physicians and better people.
