Welcome to the 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 health care networks in the state and serve the health care needs of a very diverse population throughout the Greater Lehigh Valley and beyond. The patients we serve hail from our urban centers in Allentown, Bethlehem, Hazleton and Easton, as well as surrounding suburbs (including Dickson City near Scranton). Our reach also extends into more rural parts of our region, with campuses in the Poconos and Schuylkill County.

Our flagship campus is Lehigh Valley Hospital–Cedar Crest. It houses more than 1,000 beds and is in Allentown, Pa. 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 toward 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 Health Morsani College of Medicine.
