Rheumatologists are uniquely trained and dedicate their lives to promote the health of many who may be afflicted by rheumatologic diseases and osteoporosis. We welcome you to the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville (UFCOM-J) Rheumatology Fellowship website, devoted to physicians who seek to fulfill this challenge through formal training.

The educational purpose of the rheumatology fellowship is to provide an ACGME-accredited, broad-based training to fellows in the evaluation and management of the vast array of diseases encountered in the subspecialty of rheumatology, including the care of patients with metabolic bone disorders.

The fellowship consists of clinical training for two years with integration of pertinent research in the field. Fellows are expected to increase their basic medical knowledge base in rheumatology and metabolic bone disease, to develop improved skills in the diagnosis and management of the varied types of health issues encountered, and to develop investigative skill in related disciplines. The scope and structure of the program are designed to fulfill requirements for board eligibility in rheumatology, as described in the AMA Graduate Medical Education Directory.

Our division is active in the field of musculoskeletal ultrasound. Faculty participate in national and international courses, and ultrasound-based research and education. In addition, the UFCOM-J hosts the Ultrasound School of North American Rheumatologists (USSONAR) fellow and attending course as well as the American College of Radiology intermediate musculoskeletal ultrasound course.

In addition to the professional opportunities, Jacksonville is an ideal place to live and work – it is home to perfect weather, abundant beaches, unlimited outdoor sports and home of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars.

Please explore our website in its entirety and contact us if you have any questions or need further information.
