Fellow Application Instructions

Fellowship Application Process

Stanford University Medical Center believes that a fellowship program that is composed of individuals who are both highly qualified and diverse in terms of culture, gender, race, ethnicity, background, work and life experiences, skill, and interests is essential to the postgraduate education of physicians. Because of its strong belief in the value of diversity, The SUMC Training Program especially encourages applications from African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Alaskan Natives and Pacific Islanders, as well as from others whose backgrounds and experience provide additional dimensions that will enhance the Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Training Program.
