These are valuable and versatile resources for clinical investigation by the program's fellows. For those fellows pursuing epidemiological research training, there are abundant opportunities for training within the Division as well as through faculty preceptors in the Division of General internal Medicine, the Welch Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Prevention, and the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health. All fellows are encouraged to have a didactic component to their investigative training.
A special institutional course is offered in clinical investigation, covering principles of clinical research, trial design, biostatistics, and informed consent. In addition, a Research Ethics Conference and Internet Resources Conference are each held several times during the year. These trainees provide fellows with an opportunity to hone teaching and supervisory skills. A team consisting of a faculty member and a fellow coordinates each of the Division's conferences. This leadership involves format definition, topic selection, scheduling, and evaluation. In addition, fellows are expected to present in rotation at Endocrine Journal Club all two to three years , Endocrine Research Conference second and third years , and Endocrine Subspecialty Conference all two to three years.
Furthermore, the fellows themselves orchestrate a series of Core Clinical Endocrinology Conferences, which are held two times per week to present basic topics in clinical endocrinology and metabolism for the residents and students rotating on service. By the end of their two to three years, fellows have accumulated a repertoire of brief talks on most major areas of clinical endocrinology. We individualize details of each fellow's program to meet her or his goals and needs. A major feature of this effort is selection of an Advisory Committee assigned to each fellow. The Committee consists of 4 or 5 faculty members who meet twice a year to discuss the fellow's progress and to give the fellow the advantage of having experienced faculty suggest routes toward a successful pursuit of his or her career goals.
Each fellow meets with the Program Director to discuss the fellow's training experience as well as short and long-term goals.
For first year fellows, the Advisory Committee is composed of faculty who focus on the fellow's progress as a clinical endocrinologist. For two-year fellows, this focus continues into the final year of training to ensure that fellows are well-poised to become clinical scholars ideally associated with an academic setting. In the case of fellows on the three-year pathway, research progress and academic career navigation are the focus of committee meetings during the last two years of training. The unique clinical and research interests of the fellow help to tailor the composition of each Advisory Committee.
The fellow's research mentor is a member of the Advisory Committee, but cannot be its chairperson. Members of the Advisory Committee may be drawn from any appropriate department of the Johns Hopkins University, and even from outside the University. The Committees discuss the fellow's training progress, any impediments to success and potential grants and awards to support training and career development.
Minutes of Advisory Committee meetings are incorporated in each fellow's file to help provide continuity of advice and recommendations. First-year fellows are evaluated each month based on the criteria of the American Board of Internal Medicine by attending faculty members on their inpatient and outpatient services. Second and third-year fellows have semiannual clinical evaluations. Their progress with laboratory, clinical, or health services research training is evaluated in writing by their individual faculty preceptor, who reports to the fellow's Advisory Committee every six months.
The Committees then review these reports personally with each fellow. In addition, the Program Director reviews all fellows' evaluation forms and regularly meets with them to assess their progress. Following each rotation, the fellows also evaluate faculty; yearly, fellows will evaluate all elements of the program. With this feedback, the program can be strengthened for future trainees. Fellows receive personal health, disability, life, and malpractice insurance coverage.
