The Pediatric Rheumatology Fellowship at Children's Hospital Los Angeles is a three-year program combining clinical training with research experience. Our division is known for its vast experience in diagnosing and treating children with a spectrum of autoimmune, inflammatory rheumatic diseases and for the contributions our physicians make to better the understanding and therapies of pediatric rheumatic diseases. The Division of Rheumatology utilizes a team approach including four full-time pediatric rheumatology specialized physicians, a fellow in training, an RN coordinator, a social worker, a physical and occupational therapist, and a research coordinator.
We see about 5,000 children a year in our outpatient clinics, follow all rheumatology inpatients who have a proven or a suspected rheumatic disorder, consult to all other divisions in the hospital as well as to a broad base of outside referring physicians and follow children with rheumatic diseases who are admitted to the inpatient rehabilitation unit. Our physicians are also recognized for teaching and lecturing locally, nationally and internationally. The rheumatology research program is thriving with multiple projects involving new, cutting edge therapies and understanding the genetics of rheumatic illness in childhood. Our goal is to have one fellow at each year of training.
Our fellowship program includes the following:
