Education and Training

The Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes (MEND) Division supports a long tradition of excellence in education and research in health care, serving Michigan Medicine and surrounding communities.

Fellowship and Training Programs

Our division offers a Endocrinology Fellowship Training Program, designed to support fellows' individual interests, needs, and career choices. In addition, we offer a Podiatry Fellowship Training Program, for those interested in a career in academic podiatric medicine, and a Multidisciplinary Postdoctoral Training Program in Basic Diabetes Research, for PhD basic scientists interested in careers in diabetes research.

Conferences and Lectures

The MEND Division holds regularly scheduled conferences with the majority being available for physicians to earn CME credit. The University of Michigan Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. As an accredited CME provider, the Medical School can designate AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for university activities that meet ACCME requirements.
