Fellowship Training Program

The Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program at the University of Pittsburgh has a long tradition of academic excellence. The goal of our fellowship training program is to prepare future leaders of rheumatology for careers in academic medicine, industry, and clinical practice. The faculty includes internationally recognized leaders in rheumatology, immunology,epidemiology, and related disciplines.

  • The fellowship program has three major areas of emphasis: Clinical care, research, and education. Clinical training occurs across a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient settings that include tertiary care, community, and Veteran’s Affairs hospitals, and general rheumatology and subspecialty center clinics.  Fellows care for patients with a vast array of general rheumatology and complex multisystem diseases.

  • Research training is available in basic biomedical research and clinical/translational research tailored to the interests and future plans of the trainee.  Fellows have the option of working with faculty from the rheumatology or immunology division, or other medical school faculty.  NIH T32 Research Training Fellowship support is available for additional advanced research training.

  • Teaching skills are developed by fellows through lectures, workshops, and small group experiences with medical students, residents, and divisional education conferences.  More formal medical education training is available through medical school and department of medicine programs.

The Division of Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology at the University of Pittsburgh continues to be at the forefront of clinical and basic science research and is particularly interested in candidates for fellowship training who intend to pursue an academic research career.
