The University of Minnesota (UMN) Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program is a 2-year clinical training program. For individuals whose goal is to become an academic rheumatologist, opportunities for additional years of research training exist in disciplines such as public health and health administration, and basic science/immunology.
The program has graduated thirty-six Fellows, ten of whom have pursued academic careers. Since our first accreditation in 1987, our ABIM exam pass rate has been 100%. The program was fully accredited in 2005 and again in 2011, both times with no citations. Additionally, the program accepts J-1 and H-1B Visas.
The Goal of the University of Minnesota Medical Center Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program of today is to produce highly competent clinical rheumatologists who, aligned with trainee career goals and with the needs of the community, become scholarly academic educators, productive physician scientists, and/or compassionate community providers.
