Rheumatology Fellowship Program
The San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium (SAUSHEC) sponsors the only joint United States Air Force / United States Army fellowship program in Rheumatology. With administrative and clinic offices at the San Antonio Military Medical Center, the largest medical center in the Department of Defense, the fellowship supports a two year training program that provides intensive clinical and research experiences in the wide range of inflammatory, autoimmune and musculoskeletal diseases. Training in musculoskeletal ultrasound is available to all fellows in this program. The Rheumatology fellowship program encourages professionalism and enhances scholarly attitudes and methods for competent ongoing subspecialty care. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are prepared to sit for the American Board of Internal Medicine Rheumatology board certification examination.
Teaching activities are shared with the Rheumatology Division of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
