"My rotation in clinical endocrinology at Shands Jacksonville was an exceptional experience. It was the perfect mix of educational didactics and applied patient care in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. The level of one-on-one instruction provided by Dr. Wehmeier and the other faculty is unparalleled."

"The fundamentals of any good academic program are education, research, and patient care. Any program that excels in all three is, by definition, 'excel'-ent. The endocrinology department at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville is such a program. The atmosphere is supersaturated with learning. The faculty is committed to teaching, and the administration facilitates research in the form of mentorship, dean’s grants, and other resources. The staff is friendly and accommodating, which really lets you focus more on the patients rather than the paperwork. As a future endocrinologist, I am grateful to attending physicians and fellows for helping me lay a solid foundation upon which to build the rest of my career. Here at UF, going the extra mile is something we did ten miles ago."

"I came to UF College of Medicine – Jacksonville for my training in endocrinology from New York and I was pleasantly surprised. This program has many excellent things to offer for the trainees. I learned from my patients every day as they provided a great variety and complexity of endocrine pathology. I am glad that I had a chance to work with faculty members who are truly dedicated to teaching and impress me daily with excellent patient care skills. The large number of thyroid fine needle aspiration procedures performed provided me with great skills, which I can implement with confidence in my future practice. The discussions of interesting cases in multidisciplinary rounds, active participation in national meetings, and working in a well-equipped basic research laboratory added to a great learning experience. Truly friendly and supportive co-fellows were of great professional and personal help when needed. And of course, being in warm and beautiful Jacksonville helped my training here to be an excellent experience!"
