  • Rheumatology - Program Info

    Thank you for your interest in our fellowship program in rheumatology. Our program is based at the Einstein Arthritis Center which serves Einstein Medical Center, Willowcrest, Elkins Park and Moss Rehab. The rheumatology fellowship program has been offered here for more than 30 years. We currently have two fellowship positions, one first year and one second year.

    The Einstein Arthritis Center has a faculty of two full-time attending physicians. Our fellows also work with the faculty of Einstein’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation which is based at MossRehab.

    The two year rheumatology fellowship program is clinically oriented. First year fellows see outpatients in the Einstein Arthritis Center three half days a week. They also are in charge of the inpatient rheumatology service which consists of rheumatology patients and consultations on patients with rheumatic diseases. First year fellows also have elective rotations in orthopedic surgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and laboratory immunology. Second year fellows see outpatients three half days a week. Two of the half days are located at the Einstein Arthritis Center. The third half day is pediatric rheumatology clinic based at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. Second year fellows also are expected to participate in a research project sponsored by the Einstein Arthritis Center.

    In addition to regular teaching rounds there are a variety of formal learning experiences offered during the fellowship. There is a weekly rheumatology conference, which includes monthly musculoskeletal radiology and pathology conferences as well as other topics pertinent to the rheumatology educational experience. There are also monthly rheumatology journal/ and clinical case-conferences.

    In addition, first year fellows attend a Philadelphia city-wide conference in July and the Division of Rheumatology sponsors fellows for various rheumatology courses in the area and nationally to supplement their educational experience.
