Clinical Training

At the primary clinical site, University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, the first year fellows spend ½ day per week in their own continuity clinic, and an average of three additional half-days in general pediatric rheumatology clinics making for an average of five to six half-days per week in clinic. Three quarters of the UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital clinics occur at satellite centers within 30 minutes from the main hospital and CCF is five minutes from UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. Inpatient consultative experience occurs primarily at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. Clinical responsibilities in years two and three are designed to accommodate the rules put forth by both the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) regarding continuity clinics and research requirements, and by the NIH for fellows on training grants/NRSA’s. In addition to the regularly scheduled clinics, over the course of their training, fellows will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of electives including genetics, musculoskeletal radiology, rehabilitation, sports medicine, orthopedics, ophthalmology, and any other desired electives can likely be arranged.

On call responsibilities:

Fellows will take call from home. The first year, fellows will be on call an average of two weeks per month and two out of four weekends while on the consult service at UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital. During the second and third years, fellows will be on call an average of one week and one weekend every four weeks. Faculty members rotate call and will supervise the fellows directly during their on call weekend.
