Rheumatology Fellowship Program/Rheumatology and Immunology Education
Clinical rotations in Rheumatology are available for residents of UNMC’s Internal Medicine program, as well as those in Family Practice. This is now a required course for all family physicians that complete training at UNMC. Ninety-five percent of Internal Medicine trainees elect to take this rotation, and it has consistently been rated at the top of all Internal Medicine rotations.
Junior students also rotate through the Rheumatology Clinic Elective as part of their required junior clerkship in Internal Medicine. Additionally, subinterns and senior students may elect to take a month of rheumatology as well.
A two-year rheumatology training program is available to physicians who have completed four years of approved training in medicine. The program is designed for those who plan a career either in academic or clinical rheumatology.
For individuals who are interested in clinical investigation, a third year devoted to research in basic or clinical sciences under the guidance of a faculty sponsor is available.
The principal goal of this program is to provide excellent training in all aspects of clinical rheumatology and to enhance clinical expertise not only by experience in the clinics, but also by exposure to clinical and basic science research in rheumatoid arthritis and other rheumatic diseases.
