In the first year of training, fellows experience a combination of clinical activity, both inpatient and outpatient, and research activity. The fellow will maintain Pediatric Rheumatology outpatient clinics on a weekly basis, and may begin grant-writing activities for his or her research project.
Year 2 and Year 3
The second and third years of training are dedicated primarily to developing and completing a scholarly project and furthering academic pursuits. Clinical skills are honed by continuing to participate in outpatient clinics with progressive increased responsibility and autonomy.
