Undergraduate Medical Education
The division is heavily involved in all levels of medical education. Our faculty teach a variety of courses in the preclinical medical student curriculum, most notably the Musculoskeletal Block of the second-year Biology of Disease course.
3rd and 4th year medical students and residents are taught by Rheumatology faculty serving as attendings on the ward teaching and consult services.
The goal of our fellowship is to provide our trainees with a broad foundation in clinical rheumatology and the appropriate skills required to practice independently as an adult rheumatologist in an academic or private clinical setting.
