Division Chief's Message

Welcome to the Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Molecular Medicine at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. We are located in the heart of a thriving metropolitan area and based within a leading tertiary care medical center.  Features of our Division include:

Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and its affiliates in the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University provide an excellent training ground to accommodate individuals with diverse interests: we tailor the fellowship program according to the individual applicant, while ensuring a strong foundation in the fundamentals of clinical endocrinology and diabetes care for all fellows. Our fellows work alongside over 25 full-time research and clinical faculty.  In addition, trainees work with a fully dedicated hospital-based nursing team with expertise in diabetes care and responsibility for inpatient glucose management across all services in the hospital.  Our outpatient experience includes supervision by national experts in neuroendocrinology, endocrine cancers, thyroidology, reproductive endocrinology, lipidology, bone health (including on-site densitometry), type 1 and type 2 diabetes management, and obesity.  Supporting our physician staff is a team of Certified Diabetes Educators, Nurse Practitioners, and Psychologists, and collectively, our patient visits in 2015 exceeded 15,000 individuals

Northwestern Medicine is in a phase of rapid growth, and an exciting campaign has been initiated to create an interdisciplinary diabetes and obesity center encompassing both clinical and research activities.

We welcome your interest and encourage you to contact us to explore our division and learn more about our program.
