    I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this specialty. I'm looking for residency length, pros/cons, salary, etc. Thanks :)

    Endocrinology is a 2 year fellowship completed after an IM residency. Salaries depend on the practice environment but are comparable with most non-procedural IM specialties. More info could be had at: http://www.ama-assn.org/freida

    Check out the following link in which we briefly discussed this topic:

    There is another student who has expressed some interest in the field; he may be able to provide some more insight.

    Hope this helps.
