During the course of their fellowship, fellows assume major responsibility for participating in sectional conferences. These include journal club, research conferences, clinical case conferences, core curriculum lectures, musculoskeletal radiology rounds, and a board review course. We dedicate the summer months teaching fellows about topics in rheumatology and immunology. Subspecialty conferences of interest are also offered by other programs throughout the Medical Center. The teaching program was recently reorganized around a two year teaching cycle that guides the rheumatology fellow in a directed program of learning.
