Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center offers a three-year fellowship in rheumatology for MD or MD / PhD trainees who wish to become pediatric rheumatologists. The opportunity is also available for medical / pediatric-trained individuals to become board eligible in pediatric and adult rheumatology through a four-year combined pediatric / adult fellowship program in collaboration with the University of Cincinnati.
The Rheumatology Fellowship Program at Cincinnati Children’s is ACGME accredited, and each program is aimed at meeting requirements for its respective board exam in rheumatology. The fellowship program director is Jennifer Huggins, MD.
The program accepts two new fellows each year. Candidates must complete general boards before being eligible for subspecialty boards, as mandated by the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Internal Medicine. Fellows are strongly encouraged to obtain a master’s degree in an appropriate area as part of their fellowship training.
