The pediatric rheumatology fellowship at UCSF is committed to training future academic pediatric rheumatologists. Our goal is to provide trainees with the necessary knowledge and skills to provide excellent care to patients and advance the field of pediatric rheumatology. Fellows are expected to complete one year of clinical training and two years of scholarly training to prepare for a career that combines clinical pediatric rheumatology with clinical/translational investigation, basic laboratory investigation, health services research, educational scholarship, or other areas of academic focus. The fellowship is designed to meet the requirements of the ACGME, prepare fellows for the Board Exam in Pediatric Rheumatology, and allow fellows to follow their own passion.
