Diabetes affects an increasing number of individuals in the US and worldwide. It often decreases quality of life and accounts for a disproportionately high percentage of clinic visits and hospitalizations. Despite the growing need, there is an estimated shortage of 1,500 adult providers and 100 pediatric providers able to provide specialized care for patients with diabetes in the U.S. The paucity of adult providers is expected to remain or worsen over the next few years. Primary care providers must be able to deliver quality care for patients with diabetes. A focused period of specialized training in diabetes after internal medicine, medicine-pediatrics or family medicine housestaff training in an established academic setting that can provide up-to-date comprehensive education in diabetes clinical care will prepare physicians who have a desire to become diabetes specialists with the knowledge, experience, expertise and skills needed to deliver quality care for individuals with diabetes.

The overarching goal of the University of Colorado (CU) Training for Excellence in Diabetes Care Certificate Program is to train motivated individuals in the care of patients with all types of diabetes, diabetes complications, preventive care, and associated comorbidities including obesity and lipid disorders. Fellows will integrate outpatient and inpatient clinical experiences, evidence-based practice and didactics, with discussion of relevant research to develop appropriate management and follow-up plans for patients with diabetes referred for outpatient and inpatient consultation. This fellowship provides a balanced and structured experience in the basic care and specialized management of diabetes and metabolism including the use of diabetes technologies. One fellow will be accepted for the 2020-2021 academic year.
