Message from the Chief

Dedicated to the mission of the Icahn School of Medicine, our division focuses on excellence in the delivery of patient care, research, and education. We serve as a resource for the National Amyloidosis Support Group, the South Harlem Lupus Support Group, and the New York Chapter of the National Arthritis Foundation.  We receive over 100 applications for only one to two fellowship spots.

As the U.S. population ages, there has been a considerable surge in the incidence and severity of musculoskeletal and autoimmune diseases.  We are dedicated to providing excellent care and furthering basic knowledge pertinent to rheumatologic diseases. I invite you to discover more about our faculty members, their research interests, training opportunities, and our patient care programs.
