The fellow will have access to didactic sessions from the Division of Endocrinology covering a broad range of topics, as well as more specialized instruction in transgender and bone health, including lab techniques, interpretation of bone turnover marker testing and reading bone density studies. The fellow will also gain clinical exposure by working with physicians in our practice.
