Rheumatology Fellowship Additional Research Training
If you are a fellow who would like an academic career in rheumatology, you may pursue an additional one or two years of research training in NYU Langone’s Division of Rheumatology at the discretion of program leadership. This additional time, beyond the framework of the two-year, Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education–accredited training program, allows you to focus on research skills and experience that promote an academic career while also continuing to improve your clinical skills.
Pursuing this extended research training enables you to reduce your clinic time, take on some attending duties, and focus largely on research and career development under the guidance of a mentor. You may also be considered for additional training, such as a master’s program in clinical investigation, and are expected to make efforts to publish and secure grants. Through a competitive application process, research fellows may be supported on our National Institutes of Health T32 research training award.
Clinical and Translational Research Facilities
Among the many facilities where you train, two stand out for their clinical and translational research missions and are likely to be of special interest to you while you’re pursuing a research career.
Seligman Center for Advanced Therapeutics
The Seligman Center for Advanced Therapeutics at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center is a translational research center that facilitates clinical research on rheumatic and related diseases and conditions. During your training, you have access and exposure to the groundbreaking research taking place at this center.
Clinical and Translational Science Institute
NYU Langone’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute offers resources and training to accelerate the translation of research from bench to bedside. Selected rheumatology fellows participate in clinical research programs at this site.
