Rheumatology in the department of pediatrics

Education

The Division of Pediatric Rheumatology at Stanford University School of Medicine stands committed to the education of future physicians in the recognition, understanding and treatment of rheumatic diseases of childhood. Lectures and interactive conferences given to medical students, pediatric and medical residents, subspecialty fellows in rheumatology and other disciplines, and community physicians and attending subspecialists are a part of the educational program to inform the medical community of these under-recognized conditions in childhood.  We encourage medical students, residents, and other physicians to work with us directly in clinics and the inpatient hospital setting to better experience and learn firsthand what pediatric rheumatology entails. Additionally, we welcome high school and undergraduate college students to participate in both clinical and basic science internships during the summer and throughout the school year. The division of pediatric rheumatology at Stanford also currently offers an ACGME accredited subspecialty post-residency fellowship training program leading to board-eligibility in pediatric rheumatology.
