Program Overview

Rheumatology Fellowship Program at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY, combines a balanced experience in clinical rheumatology, basic science, and research, allowing graduates the opportunity to pursue either an academic or private practice career. Fellows rotate through adult ambulatory clinics at the University of Kentucky Medical Center, the attached VA Medical Center, pediatric clinic at Shriner’s Hospital in Lexington, and the Arthritis Center of Lexington, a private practice setting with adjunct faculty from the University of Kentucky. The Division of Rheumatology has the unique advantage of being linked to the Division of Women’s Health under the leadership of Dr. Leslie J. Crofford, Gloria W. Singletary Professor and Chair of the Division of Women’s Health and Rheumatology. This provides the Rheumatology fellow an opportunity to collaborate with faculty in Women’s Health and will be especially beneficial for those interested in the study of autoimmune disease as it relates to gender and hormone differences. The fellow will be able to tailor a wide range of research and scholarly activities to their own interests and career goals under the supervision of dedicated and experienced faculty.
