The T32 Career Development Program "Developing Pediatric Endocrinologists and Diabetes Psychologists for the Future" is designed to help address the critical shortage of trained physicians and behavioral scientists throughout the United States, with particular attention to addressing the need for scientists trained in pediatric diabetes research. Since 2001, when this training program began, individuals trained through our program have demonstrated outstanding professional trajectories with the great majority of trainees remaining in academic positions. Since the last renewal in 2019, we added a postdoctoral fellow in clinical psychology position to address the even more critical shortage of psychologists trained in behavioral research and diabetes.
The overall goal of the T32 Program is to develop pediatric endocrinologists and psychologists who are well grounded in basic, translational, and/or clinical science research skills required for advancing the field of knowledge in type 1 and type 2 diabetes and are educated in collaborative and integrated approaches for translating basic discoveries in diabetes into opportunities for advancing clinical research and care. This program supports funding for 3 pediatric endocrinology fellows and one psychology postdoctoral fellow each year. The Barbara Davis Center at the University of Colorado offers unique opportunities for PhD psychologists to train alongside pediatric endocrinology fellows, enriching the training experience of both disciplines.
