Eligibility & Application Process

Eligibility & Conditions

Physicians who will have completed an ACGME-accredited internal medicine residency may apply to the program. USF is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate with regard to sex, color, creed, religion, sexual preference or disability.

The program, designed for two fellows each year, is flexible to allow for individual interests and needs. The length of fellowship training is two years for most candidates and results in eligibility for subspecialty board certification in rheumatology. Opportunities for additional research training may also be arranged on an individual basis.

Application Process

The division of Rheumatology at USF participates in the national medical residency matching program. Applications should be submitted through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service).
