Residency Program

Given the frequency of musculoskeletal problems seen in general practice, it is critical that providers have adequate instruction in the essentials of rheumatologic diagnosis and treatment.

A residency in internal medicine gives you access to work with the doctors in the Duke Division of Rheumatology and Immunology.

Our division is a leader in incorporating house officers in subspecialty clinics and expanding training opportunities for individuals interested in primary care and general internal medicine.

The training program is designed to produce rheumatologists who will be successful in all fields, whether in private practice, as academic clinician educators, or as physician-scientists.
