The Rheumatology Fellowship program trains the academic rheumatology leaders of the future, including researchers, master clinicians and educators. Our trainees become clinicians who provide the highest-quality rheumatology care. We strive to instill in all our trainees the practice of lifelong learning, teaching and investigation.
In addition to a rich schedule of didactic lectures and clinical conferences, the fellowship offers extensive clinical exposure in the outpatient rheumatology clinics at HSS and the inpatient consultative service at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
The consult service sees 3-5 consults a day from NYPH and MSKCC. First years spend approximately 8 months on the consult service. Inpatients include a diverse range of diseases including SLE and lupus pregnancy, gout, vasculitis, APS, dermatomyositis, immune-therapy related and infectious disease related autoimmunity, among others. Our patient population represents diverse ethnicities, nationalities and socioeconomic statuses.
Clinics, occurring three times a week are situated within the HSS Centers of Excellence including Lupus and APS, Scleroderma, Vasculitis and Myositis, as well as Inflammatory Arthritis. All clinics are followed by clinic conference taught by clinic chiefs from the Centers of Excellence and the various members of our large faculty.
Second and third year fellows devote 60% of their effort to research projects, either bench, clinical or translational, supported by a faculty mentor and a research mentorship committee, led by the Program Director.
Most fellows participating in clinical research during their 2nd and 3rd year also pursue additional training in statistics and epidemiology through the Weill Cornell CTSC either through the certificate or master’s program. Advanced training is available at Columbia in their Master’s program.
