Stanford Pediatric Rheumatology Division is dedicated to the training of future pediatricians and pediatric rheumatologists in recognizing and treating childhood rheumatologic disorders.  The Division of Pediatric Rheumatology at Stanford University School of Medicine offers an ACGME-accredited program leading to Board eligibility in pediatric rheumatology.  The training program is designed to prepare specialists in the delivery of skilled medical and consultative care to patients with a broad spectrum rheumatic conditions found in childhood and adolescence, as well as to encourage the pursuit of careers in academic pediatric rheumatology.

The mission of the pediatric rheumatology fellowship training program is to develop physicians that are clinically competent in the diagnosis and management of children and adolescents with rheumatic diseases and related conditions. In addition, we equip physicians with skills and knowledge to succeed in an academic health care setting. We encourage an atmosphere of life-long learning and professionalism.

The Pediatric Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program is a 3-year ACGME accredited training.  The first year is mainly clinical and the second and third year is mainly research.
