Fellowship Program

Our two year clinical Rheumatology program provides future rheumatologists with all the tools needed to be successful in today's workforce. Since our program started in 2009, our fellows have had the opportunity to pursue a wide variety of clinical and research opportunities. Our robust faculty has allowed our fellows to graduate and be comfortable in clinical, academic or research pursuits.

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 our fellowship program is for our fellows to acquire a comprehensive understanding of the pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and therapeutic management of the rheumatic diseases, and to demonstrate academic excellence by participating in research and education. Specifically, we have designed our curriculum around the following:  1) exposure to a wide variety of patients and disease states, 2) interaction with a variety of faculty, with differing expertise and styles, 3) exposure to a diverse and productive research environment, and 4) participation in a rich and rewarding educational experience. Commensurate with those goals, our fellows spend time in various in-patient and outpatient settings, allowing them exposure to differing mixes of patients and disease states.
