The Department of Dermatology at Massachusetts General Hospital, a flagship teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, offers a 1-year Fellowship in Connective Tissue Diseases. The fellowship is 1 year and is directed at the career development of academic dermatologists in the area of connective tissue diseases. Fellows will work under the mentorship of Gideon P. Smith MD PhD, Director of the Connective Tissue Diseases clinic, a combined effort between the Departments of Dermatology and Rheumatology.
The fellow will have 70% protected time for clinical research and education. Fellows will also have the opportunity to participate in patient management in the MGH Connective Tissue Diseases Clinic, collaborating with attendings, fellows, and residents from both dermatology and rheumatology, every week to increase their knowledge of these disease states and to help drive research questions. In addition to mentored clinical time in the MGH Connective Tissue Clinic, fellows may also elect to gain exposure to rheumatology clinics for joint exam and ultrasound, the PFT evaluation or radiology for CT and MRI for further understanding of these areas.
The goal of the fellowship is in the production of publishable academic contributions and the development of the fellow’s academic career. Didactic lectures will be in both rheumatology and dermatology.
Fellows are also able to participate in courses from the MGH Clinical research unit to build their research skills.
