Research

The purpose of the rheumatology research component of the fellowship is to provide sufficient experience to the rheumatology fellow in all of the components that encompass the research process, from study design through publication. Every trainee will engage in a research project, with a goal to present (local, regional, national meeting) and/or publish this work in a peer-reviewed journal. The following is a partial list of trainee’s publications over the last several years:
