Rheumatology

Fellowship Overview

Our UTMB Rheumatology fellowship program is fully accredited and spans two years, offering comprehensive training in the subspecialty. While traditionally admitting one fellow annually, our growing faculty base is expected to soon allow for adding an extra position.

The fellowship program is structured to provide a dynamic training experience. In the first year, fellows primarily focus on clinical duties in clinics and consult services, spanning Galveston and League City locations. In the second year, fellows transition into a leadership role, with increased elective opportunities in various subspecialties such as Nephrology (Glomerulonephritis clinic), Endocrinology (Bone health clinic), Dermatology, Neurology, Orthopedics, Sports medicine, and Pain clinic.
