Rheumatology and Immunology

Clinical Experience

Inpatient Adult Rheumatology Service
These rotations provide the fellow with the knowledge and skills to provide timely and accurate consultations to other physicians caring for hospitalized patients.

Fellows will gain experience in the diagnosis and management of inpatient rheumatic disease and coordination of the transition of care to an outpatient setting.

Outpatient Rheumatology Clinics
Rheumatology is largely an outpatient sub-specialty. The goal of these clinics is to provide the fellow with the knowledge and skills necessary to evaluate patients sent for consultations, to initiate management, and to follow patients with rheumatic disease. In addition to attending clinic at UNMC and VA Hospitals, fellows will gain private practice experience at Westroads Medical Clinic, and fellows will attend a pediatric rheumatology clinic at Omaha Children's Hospital while on the ambulatory rotation.
