Program Description

The San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium Rheumatology faculty come from a diverse background of training and practice and provide excellent clinical education. Each faculty member participates in ambulatory and inpatient care/teaching. The goal of the Rheumatology Fellowship is to provide trainees with practical clinical experience in diagnosing and managing the rheumatic diseases in the inpatient and outpatient settings. We are a tertiary referral center, accepting patients from all over the world, which allows fellows see the full spectrum of adult rheumatologic pathology.  Laboratory, pharmacy, and radiology support are provided in-house.

The first year of fellowship is geared toward practical clinical experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The fellows are taught to apply the cutting-edge therapies revolutionizing modern Rheumatology practice. The robust academic curriculum ensures fellows have a firm understanding of the basic sciences underlying their clinical practice.  Second year fellows engage in research and receive advanced instruction in obtaining and interpreting musculoskeletal ultrasound images.  Fellows also have the opportunity to rotate with a qualified pediatric rheumatologist in a pediatric rheumatology outpatient clinic during their second year.
