Welcome to the University of Rochester Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology Division and the Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program.  The fellowship training program is an ACGME accredited program with an extensive history at the University.  It enjoys the unique perspective of being a rheumatology training program within a combined Division and a medical center with a vibrant Pediatric Rheumatology Division giving fellows the additional opportunity of combined fellowships in adult and pediatric Rheumatology as well as Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology. Educational and research opportunities for fellows are quite diverse given our collaboration and joint patient care endeavors with multiple departments within the Medical Center.  Our clinical and research faculty members ensure that fellows in the program receive the highest caliber training and are prepared for multiple career paths including clinical practice, teaching, and research.

We participate in the ERAS Application Service. Please note that you must be a U.S. citizen, permanent U.S. resident, or J1 Visa holder to apply to the fellowship program. The University of Rochester does not sponsor H1B Visas so unfortunately your application cannot be considered.

The Fellowship Program Administrator is Kelly Walsh, and she can be reached by email at Kelly_Walsh@URMC.Rochester.edu.
