Education and Training

The Division of Rheumatology is responsible for teaching learners at all levels, including medical students, house officers from the Department of Internal Medicine Core Residency Program, as well as undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate trainees in our research groups. A major focus is the training of future rheumatologists, and we have a long and distinguished tradition of training Fellows who have gone on to successful careers in fields of their choice.
