I am a clinical assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and associate fellowship program director and clinical lead in quality improvement in the division of endocrinology. I previously was a clinical assistant professor at UCSF based at San Francisco General Hospital (an amazing safety net hospital), and staff endocrinologist at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Saettle (50% inpatient, insulin safety rounds co-leader, resident rotation coordinator, co-lead of thyroid cancer and neuroendocrine cancer service lines).
I have strong interests in medical education, healthy policy, and quality improvement. I love all facets of endocrinology: the feedback loops, the evolving landscape of thyroid cancer management, the patient journey that is transgender/nonbinary care, the new innovations in T1 and T2DM, etc. I want to explore how technology can help achieve better health. I've been active in teaching at every level from medical school students to CME for medical professionals throughout my career-to-date.
My fellowship was at the Brigham and Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School Cardiovascular Endocrinology Research Group, researching effects of stress on the nervous system; salt on auto-immunity; and genetic variations on the salt-sensitivity of blood pressure. Additionally, I completed a year of the Program for Clinical and Translational Science, the Partners Certificate Course in Health Policy, and the Harvard Business School Value-Based Healthcare Delivery course.

Erin E. Kershaw, MD, is currently an Associate Professor of Medicine, Chief of the Division of Endocrinology, and Endowed Chair for Obesity and Diabetes Research at The University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA. Dr. Kershaw’s clinical interests focus on disorders of “fat,” including the following core areas: 1) obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome, 2) lipodystrophies, lipomatosis, and other rare adipose tissue disorders, and 3) lipid metabolism and dyslipidemias. Dr. Kershaw is board certified in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism (American Board of Internal Medicine), Obesity Medicine (American Board of Obesity Medicine), and Clinical Lipidology (American Board of Clinical Lipidology). In addition to her clinical expertise, Dr. Kershaw runs an externally-funded translational research program focused on defining mechanisms by which lipid and steroid metabolism contribute to normal metabolism and disease. Her research in these areas includes characterizing 1) pathways of triacylglycerol hydrolysis (lipolysis), 2) novel adipocyte-secreted factors (i.e. adipokines, lipokines) and their relationship to metabolic disease, and 3) novel genes/loci linked to metabolic diseases. Her work has been funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), the American Diabetes Association (ADA), and the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Kershaw has also held several academic leadership and educational roles including serving as 1) the Associate Program Director for Research for the Clinical Endocrine Fellowship Program, 2) a member of the Training and Oversight Committee for the T32 Research Training Program in Endocrinology, and 3) a member of the steering committee for the Physician Scientist Training Program (PSTP) at the University of Pittsburgh.
