The Endocrinology & Metabolism T32 program has been funded by the NIDDK for over 45 years and is the longest funded T32 program at the University of Pittsburgh. Our program is interdisciplinary in focus, features outstanding training faculty from numerous departments throughout the University of Pittsburgh, and as a consequence offers many outstanding research opportunities in the basic, clinical, public health and epidemiology arenas . Additionally our program offers a wide-variety of didactic and educational opportunities, and intensive mentoring through individualized career development plans and mentoring committees.
Our core mission is to train the next generation of scientists and academic leaders in the field of Endocrinology by immersing them in our innovative multidisciplinary and translational research programs. Our training program has a history of more than 45 years of success in equipping MD and PhD trainees with the research and career skills required for successful independent academic careers in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism. We intend to continue this mission for years to come, and in doing so, will further the understanding and treatment of these increasingly prevalent endocrine disorders.
Our training program and the University of Pittsburgh’s Schools of the Health Sciences are committed to providing training opportunities to underrepresented, ethnic, disadvantaged, and/or disabled groups. This commitment includes specific programs designed to promote the trainee-to-faculty transition (i.e. the Career Education and Enhancement for Health Care Research Diversity (CEED) Program) as well as numerous other programs. Additional general information related to diversity resources can be found at the Office of Health Science Diversity (OHSD).
