Welcome to Lehigh Valley Health Network Endocrinology Fellowship program.

Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is a multi-campus health network located in the eastern part of Pennsylvania. We are one of the largest healthcare networks in the Commonwealth and serve the healthcare needs of a very diverse population throughout the greater Lehigh Valley and beyond. The patients we serve come from our urban centers located in Allentown, Easton and Bethlehem as well as the surrounding suburbs. Our reach also extends into more rural parts of our region, with northern campuses in the Poconos, Hazelton and Schuylkill County. 

Our flagship campus is Lehigh Valley Hospital – Cedar Crest. It houses over 850 beds and is located in Allentown, Pennsylvania. We are a major referral site for regional community hospitals and are leaned upon heavily for our specialty care. Modern facilities and state-of-the-art equipment underscore the hospital's priority towards offering the best environment in which to learn, work and provide medical care. This campus hosts our internal medicine residency program, our fellowship programs and most of our graduate medical education programs. We are also a clinical campus for the University of South Florida (USF Health) Morsani College of Medicine.
