About our fellowship

The Fellowship in Pediatric Rheumatology at Cohen Children’s Medical Center is a three-year program that prepares trainees for American Board of Pediatrics, Rheumatology Sub-board certification, as well as a rewarding career in pediatric rheumatology.

Trainees have precepted inpatient and outpatient responsibilities at two tertiary care medical centers: Cohen Children's Medical Center and North Shore University Hospital. Increasing supervisory and educational responsibility over the three years, as well as more protected time in research, is built into the program.

Didactic teaching in basic immunology, autoimmunity and connective tissue biology occurs on a regular basis, as does the teaching of clinical subjects, including:

  • Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus
  • Dermatomyositis
  • Scleroderma
  • Vasculitis
  • Pain syndromes

The program works closely with multiple other specialties, and regular conferences/journal clubs are scheduled including those with radiology, pathology, orthopedics and nephrology.
