Rheumatology - Fellowship Program

The Division of Rheumatology is actively involved in the Rheumatology Fellowship Program, which is coordinated with the Roger Williams Medical Center and affiliated with Boston University. Fellows rotate between Rhode Island Hospital, Roger Williams Medical Center, and the Veterans Administration Medical Center to learn the scientific basis of the pathophysiology and treatment of rheumatic diseases. Fellows also participate in clinical research, such as a prospective, observational trial in outcomes of rheumatoid arthritis, which is currently underway.

The Division also teaches the Pathophysiology Course on Rheumatology to second year Alpert Medical School students.
