Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium Announces Two New Fellowship Programs


LAS VEGAS, NV. (May 10, 2019) – Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education (GME) Consortium announces the approval and accreditation of two new fellowship programs: Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Fellowship program and Gastroenterology Fellowship program.

The Sunrise Health Endocrinology Fellowship program is a two-year, ACGME-accredited program designed to prepare fellows for a career in endocrinology after completing an Internal Medicine residency. It provides rigorous clinical training in outpatient management of diabetes, thyroid and other endocrine disorders leading to American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) subspecialty certification. Six dedicated endocrinologists will be involved in clinical training of the Fellowship Program.

The Sunrise Health Gastroenterology Fellowship program is the sixth HCA program in the specialty to be granted initial accreditation. The program is designed to allow fellows to obtain clinical experience at MountainView Hospital, Southern Hills Hospital and various outpatient clinics by working with successfully recruited specialists in areas as diverse as clinical hepatology and therapeutic endoscopy.

“The goals of the programs include providing unparalleled clinical experience in an academically nurturing environment,” said Dr. Ferenc Puskas, Sunrise Health GME Consortium Designated Institution Official. “Our emphasis will be on developing robust teamwork amongst fellows, faculty and staff that will be the basis of future successful practices.”

The growth of Graduate Medical Education programs creates the opportunity to elevate medical practices in the rapidly expanding community of Las Vegas.

ACGME is a private, non-profit organization that evaluates and accredits graduate medical education (GME) programs. Residency is the final phase of a long educational process, required for a physician to practice medicine, and is most influential in determining where a physician eventually practices.
