Fellowship Application

Our fellowship program is dedicated to preparing postdoctoral fellows as future leaders in Rheumatology. Our two year program is approved by the ACGME and accepts two or more new fellows each year. Research fellowships in rheumatology, immunology and inflammation are also available for individuals with Ph.D. degrees. Research training for both M.D. and Ph.D. fellows is supported in part by a training grant from the National Institutes of Health. We participate in the Rheumatology Fellowship Match of the NRMP (National Resident Match Program). Interested M.D. or MD/PhD applicants should submit an application through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Individuals interested in research fellowships only, should contact the faculty member directly with whom they wish to train.

Documents required for application:

  • Completed ERAS Application
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal Statement
  • Three letters of recommendations
  • USMLE Scores
  • Copy of ECFMG certificate (if applicable)
