Recent Work

Dr. Erenler derives from our affiliated Internal Medicine Residency program at Carney Hospital- Tufts School of Medicine, where she also served as Chief Resident. We became very familiar with her following one of her Internal Medicine clinical rotations on our service at Tufts Medical Center and were impressed with her knowledge, enthusiasm and strong desire to become an endocrinologist. Her formal training was in Turkey where she ranked 8th among all of her medical school graduates. Before starting her Internal Medicine Residency at Carney, she completed one year of Ophthalmology training in Turkey and an Internship year at the Cleveland Clinic. At Carney, she was described as “one of the best for passion, intelligence and work ethic”, an “outstanding resident”, and to be in the “top 5% of all house officers”. In a personal letter from the chairman of the Department of Medicine at Carney, she was described as kind, caring, reliable, and an exceptional young physician with a burning desire to become an endocrinologist. She has already amassed a rather prolific publication record with her most recent paper devoted to the role the hypothalamus plays in increasing insulin resistance during chronic migraine headaches. Although she has only begun her Endocrinology Fellowship, she has already contributed to the preparation of two, additional manuscripts focused on a pheochromocytoma.
