Our Team

Welcome Message from Program Director Sarah Mayson, MD

Mayson-250Thank you for your interest in the Endocrinology Fellowship training program at the University of Colorado! We offer a rich training experience that encompasses the entire spectrum of clinical endocrinology, as well as diverse opportunities for research, all in a fantastic location that is famous for great hiking and skiing.

Our core training facilities include 3 teaching hospitals:  the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH), the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center (RMR VAMC), and Denver Health Medical Center (DHMC). The University of Colorado has consistently been ranked among the top hospitals for Diabetes and Endocrinology in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. The CU Endocrine Division is also one of the largest in the country with over 70 faculty who are committed to teaching and mentoring fellows.

Although all of our fellows receive broad, in-depth clinical training in endocrinology and diabetes, we are also able to tailor the fellowship experience according to the clinical and/or research interests and anticipated career path of each individual. We offer a 2-year clinician-educator pathway and a 3-year research track (with research focused 2nd and 3rd years), which share an identical first year. We do not require that our fellows determine their chosen pathway until mid-way through the first year of fellowship. This provides some flexibility for our trainees, as we realize that their goals may evolve after starting fellowship training.

Please feel free to reach out to me via email at Sarah.Mayson@cuanschutz.edu, or our Fellowship Program Coordinator, Caroline Whitaker, at (303) 724-8098, or Caroline.Whitaker@cuanschutz.edu​ if you have any questions.

Thank you for considering our program!


Welcome from the Associate Elizabeth Thomas, M.D.

Liz Thomas pic  We welcome your interest in the University of Colorado Endocrine Fellowship training           program! As a graduate of our fellowship program myself, I can attest to the outstanding       training environment that our program provides. The unique combination of a university-   based hospital with a wide referral base, a county-based hospital serving an underserved   population, and a VA hospital serving a large geographical region allows for exposure to a   wide range of endocrine disorders. In addition, our faculty have diverse clinical and  research interests, with many national leaders in their areas of expertise. We have several   multidisciplinary clinics (diabetes, pituitary, transgender care, and NAFLD), providing the     opportunity to also learn from experts outside of the Endocrine division. Our faculty are         highly committed to teaching and mentoring, as well as supporting the wellness of our    trainees. Colorado is a beautiful place to live, with ample opportunities to enjoy the  outdoors  colleagues, friends and family! I am happy to answer any questions about or     training   program and can be reached at Elizabeth.Thomas@cuanschutz.edu.
