Training & Education

Apply for Our Type 1 Diabetes Fellows Series

April 18, 2022

We encourage endocrinology fellows to join us for the ninth annual installment of our Type 1 Diabetes Fellows series. At the heart of this program is a desire to address skill and workforce gaps by providing comprehensive education on type 1 diabetes care while also strengthening the network of next generation endocrinologists.

This year we are updating the Type 1 Diabetes Fellows Conference format to incorporate the best parts from both the pre-pandemic program and our online program from last year. This year’s program will have 2 core components:

  • 30-minute on-demand microlearning sessions; and
  • a prestigious, in-person meeting held in Atlanta June 9-10, ahead of ENDO, where fellows get the exclusive opportunity to meet with experts in T1D and product demonstrations with industry representatives.

In-person Meeting Schedule:

Fellows that are invited to attend the in-person meeting will be provided with both travel and lodging.

2022 Learning Objectives
Upon successful completion these educational initiatives, participants should be better able to:

  • Discuss the prevalence and progression of type 1 diabetes to recognize signs and differentially diagnose diabetes.
  • Devise individualized treatment strategies that use new and emerging insulin and non-insulin therapies to manage individuals with type 1 diabetes with and without common comorbid conditions.
  • Incorporate diabetes technologies, including insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring, into treatment strategies for appropriate individuals with type 1 diabetes and evaluate data from those technologies.
  • Recognize and evaluate individuals with type 1 diabetes for signs of depression and distress using updated guidelines and practice tools.
  • Apply updated knowledge of treatments, practice guidelines, and clinical skills to improve care, long-term outcomes, and sick day management of individuals with type 1 diabetes.

The Application Deadline is now closed.
