Thank you for your interest in the CU Diabetes Fellowship training program! We offer a carefully-designed curriculum with comprehensive training in all types of diabetes, complications, and comorbidities, in diverse clinical settings with outstanding faculty dedicated to teaching and mentorship. Our main clinical sites include the University of Colorado Hospital and Clinics, Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes, Rocky Mountain VA Medical Center, and Denver Health. The University of Colorado is consistently ranked among the top hospitals for Diabetes and Endocrinology in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Our fellows receive in-depth clinical training in the multiple facets of diabetes care during their fellowship year, and we have some flexibility to tailor the fellowship experience to specific clinical interests of each fellow.
Please feel free to contact me, Dr. Sarit Polsky, or Caroline Whitaker for more information about our fellowship program!
A little bit about me – I did my endocrinology fellowship training at the University of Colorado and joined the faculty at the Denver VA Medical Center for the first part of my career, then moved my clinical and academic work back to the University of Colorado Hospital in 2012. I see patients in the Endocrine Clinic at UCH, and I serve as Director of the Glucose Management Team at the University of Colorado Hospital. I teach medical students, house staff and fellows, lead clinical trials and QI projects, and I help design, oversee safety, and work on endpoint adjudication for clinical trials at CPC Clinical Research. I was born in Austin, Texas, and moved around the US and the world a lot as a kid, including Malaysia, and Taiwan where I graduated from high school. I’ve also lived in California (Pomona College), New York (medical school at the University of Rochester), and Utah (residency and chief residency at the University of Utah). I have two dogs, and I love the outdoors.
A little bit about me – I have had the good fortune to be able to train and live in different parts of the world. I did my undergraduate degree in Massachusetts (Brandeis University), medical school training in Israel and the United States (Medical School for International Health in collaboration with Columbia University), masters of public health in Maryland (Bloomberg School of Public Health), Internal Medicine residency in New York (Jacobi Medical Center), clinical research fellowship in New York (Montefiore Medical Center), and Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism fellowship in Colorado (University of Colorado).
I joined the faculty at the University of Colorado (Endocrine division) in 2011 and at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes in 2014. I am the Director of the Pregnancy and Women’s Health Clinic at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes, Adult Clinic (https://medschool.cuanschutz.edu/barbara-davis-center-for-diabetes/patient-care/adult-clinic#ac-pregnancy-clinic-3). I conduct clinical trials in therapeutics and advanced technologies in diabetes both in and outside of pregnancy.
