For Medical Professionals - Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

The specialists in the Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism offer children comprehensive, world-class care. Our endocrinologists have advanced subspecialization, meaning we can offer the most leading-edge, targeted treatments available.

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has a national reputation for excellent care. That’s one reason why U.S. News & World Report ranks us among the top 5 children’s hospitals in the country and the best in California. The same report also lists us among the top 8 in the nation for pediatric endocrinology and diabetes care.

Pediatric Endocrinology at Children’s Hospital: Why Choose Us

In addition to providing exceptional clinical care, our endocrinologists also train the next generation of clinicians. We participate in the latest research projects and stay up-to-date on the most advanced treatments.

Other highlights of our center include: 

  • Aligned team of clinical providers: Our fellowship program tends to attract fellows who have an interest in patient advocacy and expanding access to care. We have a cohort of fellows and clinicians who share similar goals, leading to a sense of deep camaraderie. 
  • Care and training from experts: CHLA clinicians have advanced training and are recognized experts in their fields. Our specialists even provide education to other physicians in the community. For example, we can guide pediatricians regarding what types of hormonal changes to look for in patient labs and when to make referrals.
  • Comprehensive fellowship experience: Fellows benefit from our location in the diverse community of Los Angeles, both in terms of ethnic diversity and in the variety of conditions we treat. Fellows receive a well-rounded, comprehensive experience with time spent in clinical care as well as endocrinology research.

Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship

For nearly 30 years, we have trained fellows in excellent endocrinology and diabetes care. Fellows also have opportunities to collaborate with multiple divisions throughout the hospital, such as those in the Heart Institute or Neuro-Oncology Program

Each year, we accept two endocrinology fellows. We are among only a few programs in the country that offer a three-year pediatric endocrinology fellowship. Learn more about our endocrinology fellowship
