Fellowship Monthly Conference: Fellowship seminars take place in the rheumatology conference room (E542) in the Evans building.

The Boston University Medical Center (BUMC) Rheumatology Fellowship Program provides organized training and supervision experience over two years, sufficient for the trainee to acquire proficiency as a consultant in rheumatology.  The program provides both the facilities and clinical experience with supervision to achieve this goal.  The facilities include inpatient facilities at Boston Medical Center and at the Boston VA Medical Center.  Each is fully equipped with imaging facilities (including computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging), a fully equipped clinical laboratory on a 24 hr basis and has a polarized light microscope available for use by the fellows.
