The UCLA-Olive View Rheumatology Fellowship Program is a dynamic clinical and research program in the Los Angeles area with over a 30-year history of training outstanding board-certified rheumatologists.
UCLA Medical Center treats patients encompassing the full spectrum of connective tissue diseases, from infectious arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, sero-negative spondyloarthritides, systemic lupus erythematosus and systemic vasculitis to osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, gout, pseudogout, and localized musculoskeletal pain conditions. The program includes ambulatory arthritis clinics with a total of approximately 5,000 patient visits yearly. The inpatient and outpatient services at UCLA Medical Center are outstanding resources for clinical training and clinical research.
This program has two full-time faculty, three part-time clinical faculty, thirteen volunteer attending rheumatologists (eleven in private practice and two in industry), and two fellowship positions. The training program provides diverse educational experiences by incorporating elective rotations that may include the Greater Los Angeles VA Healthcare System, Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, and/or the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Clinical rotations will also include training in medical orthopedics, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and pediatric rheumatology. A strong didactic teaching program includes clinical and basic science core curriculum seminars, clinical and basic science journal clubs, x-ray conferences, pathology conferences, and emphasis on bedside teaching.
