Patient Care

Patient Care All fellows care for a cohort of patients that they follow throughout their years as fellows, allowing them to gradually increase their competence and independence as clinicians, under the direct supervision of the attending faculty. Learning is enhanced by close working relationships with other divisions, orthopaedic surgery, pediatric rheumatology, dermatology, nephrology, ophthalmology, and allied health professions.
