Fellows Training Series Premium Curriculum Outline

Welcome to Fellows Training Series, a comprehensive program designed to support program directors and prepare the next generation of endocrinologists. Premium subscribers gain access to each year's ITE, re-takeable versions of prior years' ITE, procedural assessment tools, and a variety of topical modules. Learn more about the Premium package below.
Developed each year by a group of expert faculty, the In-Training Exam is a self-assessment tool consisting of 90 questions designed to gauge a fellow's current level of knowledge. The premier in-training exam for endocrinology, results can be used as a benchmark used to guide specific remediation for fellows and indicate where additional learning is needed. The exam questions are written at the expected level of proficiency expected from endocrinology fellows, and cover all topical areas according to the ABIM blueprint for Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism. The exam is available for proctoring each year from mid-January to mid-February.
  • Provide endocrine fellows an opportunity for self-assessment throughout training;
  • Identify areas where endocrine fellows require additional training;
  • Provide program directors the opportunity to evaluate their programs annually.
After the exam reports have been released, premium subscribers have access to a re-takeable version of the exam. Fellows can work through that year's exam again and again, and receive answer rationale directly after to help them learn how to think like an endocrinologist. Paired with the other post-exam resources (like the exclusive ITE slide deck!), this is an amazing resource for remediation.
Endocrine Procedures is designed to aid program directors in helping assess fellows competence in endocrine procedures as a part of the ABIM initial certification process. In collaboration with APDEM, the Endocrine Society has developed this tool to provide fellows the opportunity to practice and demonstrate competence in the interpretation of dual energy x-ray absorptiometry bone scans. This tool includes a brief orientation to the reporting requirements of dual x-ray absorptiometry bone scans based on APDEM’s Curriculum, followed by a series of case-based images from which fellows will write reports.
Endocrine Procedures is designed to aid program directors in helping assess fellows competence in endocrine procedures as a part of the ABIM initial certification process. In collaboration with APDEM, the Endocrine Society has developed this tool to provide fellows the opportunity to practice and demonstrate competence in the interpretation of thyroid ultrasound. This tool includes a brief orientation to the reporting requirements of thyroid ultrasound based on APDEM’s Curriculum, followed by a series of case-based images from which fellows will write reports.
Endocrine Procedures is designed to aid program directors in helping assess fellows competence in endocrine procedures as a part of the ABIM initial certification process. In collaboration with APDEM, the Endocrine Society has developed this tool to provide fellows the opportunity to practice and demonstrate competence in the interpretation of continuous glucose monitors and insulin pumps. This tool includes a brief orientation to the reporting requirements of CGM data analysis based on APDEM’s Curriculum, followed by a series of case-based data reports from which fellows will write reports and treatment recommendations.
Rare Bone Diseases is a Fellows Training Series module featuring a series of lectures on several topics, including Paget Disease; Osteogenesis Imperfecta; McCun-Albright Syndrome; and others.
  • Assess who is at risk for different rare bone diseases
  • Diagnose bone disease
  • Manage bone disease in a patient
The Management of Patients with Obesity Fellows Training Series module features a series of lectures from world-renowned speakers on various aspects of obesity. The learner is asked to watch clips of each lecture and then complete the questions, which are based on the videos and other learning points in the APDEM curriculum.
  • Incorporate key measures and updated algorithms for risk when assessing patients for obesity
  • Evaluate and apply intensive lifestyle interventions
  • Apply evidence-based guidelines in the selection and use of pharmacotherapy to treat patients with obesity
  • Evaluate and understand implications of bariatric surgery
Analyzing and interpreting magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of pituitary sellar lesions is done routinely in clinical practice. APDEM recognizes that these skills should be incorporated in endocrinology fellowship program curriculum. This online activity will address training points included in the APDEM Curriculum and will help prepare your fellows for their clinical careers.
  • Interpret imaging of pitutairy sellar lesions, the differential diagnosis of these masses, and describe imaging protocol
  • Assess their knowledge through image-based clinical case vignettes
  • Identify normal pituitary imaging and describe the radiographic appearance of an abnormal pituitary
Analyzing and interpreting adrenal images is done routinely in clinical practice. APDEM recognizes that these skills should be incorporated in an endocrinology fellowship program curriculum. This online activity will address training points omcluded in the APDEM Curriculum and will help prepare fellows for their clinical careers.
  • Interpret imaging phenotype to predict the histologic type of adrenal disease
  • Apply knowledge through image-based clinical case vignettes
  • Access a downloadable table of adrenal mass imaging phenotypes to use in practice
Managing patients type 1 diabetes (T1D) and the associated complications using patient-centered care and evolving therapies requires continual education for endocrine fellows, especially during a time of increasing endocrinologist workforce needs.
  • Devise individualized treatment strategies to manage individuals with T1D with and without common comorbid conditions
  • Incorporate insulin pump therapy into treatment strategies for appropriate individuals with T1D
  • Recognize and evaluate individuals with T1D for signs of depression and distress
  • Apply updated knowledge of treatments, practice guidelines, and clinical skills to improve care, long-term outcomes, and DKA management of individuals with T1D
