Division of Rheumatology

Fellow & Resident Electives

Rheumatology elective courses are available for Internal Medicine residents & fellows. Trainees participate in all of the activities of the training program, working closely with rheumatology fellows on east or west campus rotations.

Depending on space, the Division also accepts Internal Medicine trainees from other Internal Medicine training programs (limited to 3 or 4 per month).  

Elective Schedule 

Students will attend clinic in the morning at Jacobi or Moses Mondays through Thursdays, and weekly Journal Club and Grand Rounds Fridays 8-10 am. Inpatient Rounds scheduling will vary depending on the attending physician, but typically occur three times per week. 

To determine when and where to report on the first day, students must contact the Rheumatology Program Coordinator (below) or page the Jacobi fellow (page operator (718) 918-5000, dial 0) M-F 9 am-5 pm during the week prior to the elective.
