Our Team: Steering Committee

The mission of Endocrinology Fellowship Steering Committee is to monitor the fellowship program and its trainees, to assure that educational goals and compliance are met, and to continuously improve our activities.

The committee is composed of several Core Faculty Members with particular interest in the training of endocrinologists. The committee meets regularly to review evaluations and feedback, set priorities, establish new educational initiatives, and identify potential deficiencies or opportunities.

Larry D. Soderquist Professor

I am on the Steering Committee because this allows me to structure a program that will help the trainees to experience the clinical and scientific knowledge beyond the textbook. I see this as a unique opportunity to make an impact on the future career of trainees and also as personal enrichment by interacting with a diverse group of individuals.
