Mission Statement

In addition to its outstanding commitment to clinical practice, the Division serves as an academic locus for the training of future clinicians and researchers. The educational program of the division involves teaching activities in the medical school, internship and residency programs and at the subspecialty fellowship level. The ACGME-accredited Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program provides for clinical practice and fundamental research experience, leading to eligibility for the American Board of Internal Medicine’s certification examination in rheumatology.
