Program Description:
The focus of this fellowship is to develop expertise in the diagnosis and management of connective tissue diseases, including lupus, scleroderma, morphea, dermatomyositis, and vasculitis, and other complex medical dermatoses, such as psoriasis, sarcoidosis, hidradenitis suppurativa, and atopic dermatitis. Given the systemic involvement of many of these diseases, emphasis is placed on multidisciplinary collaboration with other specialties, including rheumatology, allergy, nephrology, and gastroenterology. In particular, there is opportunity for rotations through other specialty clinics and for clinical and translational research according to the fellow’s interests. The requirements for this fellowship include a medical degree from a US or Canadian accredited medical school, completion of the USMLE or equivalent exams, and a completed residency. Along with the supplement, please sent 3 letters of recommendation, exam scores and your CV to dermtrng@bu.edu. The application cycle for the 2022-2023 academic year will open on August 25, 2021. The deadline to apply for the 2022-2023 academic year is December 31, 2021.
