What attracted you to this program:  
I am really enjoying my training and feel privileged to be an endocrinology fellow at UMKC.

The program combines fantastic teaching and clinical experience. We have weekly core-curriculum lectures that cover all aspects of endocrinology.

The program provides educational opportunities in a broad spectrum of endocrine disorders. Rounds and clinic are always educational.

The faculty is diverse, committed, very approachable and devoted to teaching. Fellows here are valued as colleagues and it makes me love my work more and more every day.

Our fellowship continuity clinic focuses on patients with endocrinopathies other than diabetes, ensuring we have exposure to a variety of endocrine disorders.

The endocrinology department is very supportive and everyone clearly enjoys their job, making it a great training environment.

I am confident that at the end of my training  I will be a well-trained and competent endocrinologist.
