Rheumatology Fellowship Program
The purpose of this 2 year fellowship in Rheumatology is to provide an intensive clinical and research experience in a broad spectrum of inflammatory and musculoskeletal diseases, producing sub-specialists with expertise in the care of patients with rheumatic diseases. Physicians completing the fellowship will be able to become accomplished practitioner and consultant in the rheumatic diseases, and be eligible for and capable of passing the subspecialty examination in Rheumatology given by the American board of Internal Medicine, which has accredited this program. This program encourages the professionalism and scholarly attitudes and approaches of a competent sub specialist including those that are needed to maintain an understanding of current concepts in rheumatology as advances occur. This program will augment the readiness of the United States Air Force by providing physicians capable of treating rheumatic conditions, which have the potential to cause disability in all age groups. There are two fellow positions at each year level. This program is part of the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium, with administrative offices and continuity of care clinics at Brook Army Medical Center, and shares teaching activities with the University of Texas at San Antonio.
