The Rheumatology Fellowship is a two-year training program that is based at the Mount Sinai Health System. Trainees encounter a diverse spectrum of clinical rheumatology in both the inpatient and ambulatory settings, and our teaching faculty includes outstanding clinicians and leading researchers. Members of our faculty have diverse backgrounds, thus providing our trainees with the mentorship and opportunities needed to fulfill their career goals – in academic medicine, as physician-scientists or clinical educators, or in clinical practice.
Applicants to the program will usually have completed two or three years of Internal Medicine, and should be board eligible by the end of the first year of fellowship. During the first year, trainees will focus on attaining clinical proficiency, and in the second year, clinical investigation or basic science research will be emphasized. A third year of research training may be offered to fellows who demonstrate commitment and distinction.
