Customizing Your Endocrinology Education

Dr. Sachin Majumdar cares for a patient at Yale New Haven Hospital.

Yale Endocrinology and Yale School of Medicine offer many ways to customize your education beyond the tracks offered within the section.

Further Research Training Opportunities

Yale endocrine fellows enter our program with a variety of past research experiences. Some have extensive backgrounds and already have earned a PhD prior to medical school or as part of a joint MD/PhD program. However, many have less experience and decide to pursue an investigative career during clinical training. To help all trainees meet their career goals, Yale offers additional formal training programs to develop young investigators.


  • National Clinical Scholars Program

    A two-year fellowship program designed for clinicians and nurses who have completed their training. Fellows and junior faculty are welcome to apply. The program seeks to create clinician leaders that will improve health and healthcare in the US through collaborative scholarship and action at the local, state, and the national level.

  • Investigative Medicine Program

    A training program for physicians interested in either lab-based or patient-based clinical investigation, culminating in a PhD degree. Most students complete the program within three to four years.

  • Master of Health Sciences Degree

    A two-year masters program open to residents, fellows, and faculty in the Yale School of Medicine. Pathways include clinical, medical informatics, laboratory/translational, or medical education.

  • YSM Science Fellows Program

    A mentorship program designed to support research and postdoctoral careers of outstanding research scientists. Amongst the benefits of the program include a generous stipend, faculty mentorship, and access to independent research funding. Those with newly awarded PhDs or MD/PhDs who identify as an underrepresented group in medicine are encouraged to apply.

  • YCCI Scholars Program

    A training program for fellows and junior faculty interested in pursuing a career in translational research. The program seeks to train participants in use of state-of the art equipment, provide the skills to work in diverse multidisciplinary research teams and to support their professional development.

  • Medical Education Fellowship

    A one-year fellowship program for faculty interested in pursuing educational leadership roles within their departments. The course will provide instruction on how to create an education project, enhance teaching skills, and improve skills in giving feedback.

  • Janeway Society

    A mentorship and career development program for full-time junior faculty interested in pursuing a physician-scientist path. Goals of the program include shortening time to independence at Yale.
