The Rheumatology fellowship at the University of Kansas Medical Center is an ACGME accredited two year program to train for a career in academic as well as clinical Rheumatology. We currently have four board certified Rheumatology Attendings, one of whom are also board certified in Allergy and Immunology. We have one nurse practitioner who participates in the care of our patient base. In addition, we have a PhD researcher who is actively involved in fellowship education.
The University of Kansas Hospital is a 575-bed academic tertiary care referral center for the Kansas City metropolitan area, western Missouri, and eastern Kansas. Although a KU Medical Center is a private hospital, we are afforded the luxury of an incredibly diverse population of patients. KU Medical Center features a robust electronic medical record system, O2, a product from Epic Systems Corporation. This system is currently being implemented into our clinic based practices so that we can provide our patients with the best advances in EMR.
Our clinics consist of an adult and pediatric practice at KU Medical Center, and an adult practice at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Kansas City, MO. Our clinics offer a wide range of training models and patient profiles to allow for outstanding cross-training. Each clinic is staffed with superb ancillary staff to ensure the best in patient care and clinic efficiency. In addition, we are now practicing in a state-of-the-art medical office building as of 2011.
We are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic, and intelligent individuals who want to be a part of our Rheumatology program. The goal of our fellowship is give physicians the optimal education and research experience that they need in order to provide exceptional allergy and immunology care in the future. We currently offer two competitive fellowship positions per year.
We are excited about our program and thank you for your interest,
