Fellows are responsible for providing education in multiple forums. Teaching activities by the fellows are observed and monitored by the faculty, who provide education through constructive critique and evaluation.
Fellows assume increasing responsibility for teaching medical students, residents, other fellows and ancillary personnel during daily multidisciplinary bedside rounds and outpatient clinical settings. Fellows provide musculoskeletal exam teaching to medical students and residents four times per year. In addition, fellows teach modules on JIA, JDM, Kawasaki Disease and Henoch-Schönlein Purpura.
Two main conferences in Rheumatology involve teaching by the fellows:
- Combined conference – involves presentation of Pediatric Rheumatology case in which members of other divisions involved in the case are present for the discussion. The fellow is responsible for comprehensive review and critical synthesis of the literature.
- Journal Club – Journal articles are comprehensively reviewed, formally presented and evaluated for research quality.
Fellows attend an annual Teaching Workshop at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
