Diabetes Fellowship

Diabetes is a major clinical and public health threat. And while this public health emergency continues to expand, the number of health care providers focusing on diabetes treatment remains stagnant.

Touro University California is proud to be the first university west of the Rockies and one of only 6 universities in the US that offer a comprehensive one-year, non-accredited diabetology fellowship program.

Biography

Dr. Jay Shubrook is a Professor of the Primary Care Department at Touro University California. His professional work and passion focuses on: 1. Preparing the primary care workforce to better manage diabetes; and 2. Optimizing the prevention and treatment of diabetes. After 10 years in primary care, he completed a Diabetes Management Fellowship and has been focusing on care of the patient with diabetes ever since. He has served as the Director of an integrated comprehensive diabetes care center and also as the Director of Clinical Research at both Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (HCOM) and more recently Touro University California College of Osteopathic Medicine. He served as the Director of the Diabetes Fellowship Program for Primary Care Physicians at HCOM and looks forward to expanding this training opportunity to new professionals and a new institution. He still advises the program at HCOM and serves on a national ad hoc committee of American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists on implementing primary care diabetes training even more broadly. He has served on a number of national roles such as Chair of the Primary Care Advisory Group of the American Diabetes Association and the Chair of the Research Committee of the Guidelines Advantage - a collaboration between the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, and the American Diabetes Association. He has been NCQA certified throughout his time as a Diabetologist and has helped each of their Fellows achieve this honor.

Dr. Shubrook served in both primary care and specialist roles. He is acutely aware of the gaps in the health care system that lead to fragmented poorly coordinated and executed care. Further having been active in measuring quality of care he is accustomed and very knowledgeable of the clinical shortcomings of clinical practice self-assessment.
