The rheumatology division has placed a high priority on providing outstanding rheumatology training at all levels, including medical students, internal medicine residents and rheumatology fellows.


The educational programs of the division involve teaching activities in the medical school, graduate school, internship and residency programs and at the subspecialty fellowship level. We actively participate in continuing medical education programs for physicians in practice. Our success in these areas has been underscored by the number of teaching awards our faculty members have received and our regular recruitment of outstanding UCSF medicine residents to our fellowship program. Our highly regarded subspecialty training program in rheumatology aims to produce rheumatologists of the highest caliber.
