The breadth and depth of our division, the department, and the institution as a whole enable us to develop training plans that are flexible and customized to the unique needs and career goals of each fellow.
Duke University is one of the leading medical centers in the world that provides care to a diverse patient population with the full spectrum of rheumatic diseases, in addition to offering a rich and collaborative research environment with opportunities spanning basic, translational, and clinical research. As with most pediatric subspecialty fellowship programs, the Duke Pediatric Rheumatology Fellowship is a three-year program (longer for those choosing to pursue a combined fellowship). The first year focuses on developing core clinical skills through work in both the inpatient and outpatient settings, whereas years two and three provide protected time for a focus on scholarly activity. With one to two incoming fellows per year, the program averages a total of four to five fellows at any given time, allowing first-year fellows to benefit from the support of senior fellows, and senior fellows to have the opportunity to assume teaching roles, with the support of nine pediatric rheumatology faculty.
