Rheumatology Fellowship Overview
This fellowship offers exposure to an extremely broad spectrum of patients in a variety of health care settings. Patients are seen in a primary care setting in the outpatient clinic, in a referral mode as outpatients, and in a consultative capacity on the medicine, pediatric, surgical, psychiatric wards, and intensive care units. For further information, see "facilities and resources" in the curriculum.
Applicants for this program must be board eligible or certified in internal medicine by the time their fellowship training will begin. Trainees will be selected from a pool of applicants applying through the Graduate Medical Education Committee, one voting member of which is the rheumatology program director. This pool includes internists currently practicing on active duty and internal medicine residents completing residency both on active and HPSP deferred status.
