Obesity, Metabolism and Nutrition Fellowship

Our Division of Endocrinology is proud to announce our new Obesity, Metabolism, and Nutrition Training Program. It is a non-ACGME certified, 1-year program that will admit one trainee per year. The program is accredited by the Obesity Medicine Fellowship Counsil and is designed to provide the fellow with the proper training to develop clinical competence in the field of obesity, metabolism, and nutrition. The clinical subspecialty fellow will be accepted after completing an accredited program in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology, or Family Medicine.  During the 1-year fellowship, the trainee will spend a total of 42 weeks on clinical service and 4 weeks involved in a mentor-based clinical research project.  The subspecialty fellow will attend an average of 6-8 ambulatory clinics per week.

Regular divisional activities include weekly clinical case conferences and grand rounds, research seminars, clinical tutorials, and journal clubs. The subspecialty residents participate in bedside teaching and lectures of medical students and internal medicine house-staff. Facilities will include University of Texas Health San Antonio outpatient clinics, including the Obesity and Metabolic Health Clinic, Endocrinology, and Diabetes Clinics. As well as Pediatric Endocrinology and Bariatric Surgery Clinics.

Fellows who have completed the program will obtain board certification in Obesity Medicine from the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) at the completion of their fellowship.
