A Message from the Program Director

This is a wonderful and exciting time to pursue a career in Rheumatology. The development of new therapeutics over the past 2 decades has revolutionized the care and dramatically improved the outcomes of our patients. Our increasing understanding of novel immunologic pathways and discoveries continues to pave ways to safer, more targeted, and innovative therapeutic interventions.

As Program Director, my commitment is to provide our fellows with a high quality and balanced educational experience as we foster gradual autonomy. The diversity, breadth and depth of the disease complexity in our patients remains both a source of challenge, as well as a source of reward, in cultivating the growth of each budding rheumatologist and lifetime learner. Whatever your goal, be it academic, private practice, or industry, the Einstein Rheumatology Fellowship Program will provide a solid foundation to build upon for our graduates' careers.

Thank you for visiting our website. I wish you the very best with your application and future endeavors.
