The Division of Endocrinology currently includes one fellowship position in each year of the two-year program. There is a three month (25%) research block each year. The remaining nine months of each year are clinical, with the fellow attending three weekly clinics in general: endocrinology, diabetes, and fine-needle aspiration of the thyroid. The Nassau University Medical Center is a 615-bed hospital with an abundance of excellent clinical material. There is close contact with the three full-time attending physicians, in addition to two outside voluntary staff physicians who participate in the teaching program. NUMC is a clinical campus of the Medical School at SUNY at Stony Brook.
The Director of the Fellowship Program is Salini Kumar, M.D. To request an application for the Endocrinology Program at NUMC, please contact the program office at (516) 572-6501 (phone) or (516) 572-5609 (fax).
