Of particular note is the focused approach to training goals for each laboratory-based trainee; a commitment to provide maximal training duration; the uniform extramural funding of the independent investigators that serve as faculty; the productive record of the program; the presence of a knowledgeable junior training faculty; the availability of adjunct faculty whose primary areas of basic science and/or clinical investigation are tied to those of metabolism, diabetes and endocrinology; and the diversity of the faculty research programs which range from molecular endocrinology to clinical research.
