Geisinger's Rheumatology Fellowship is a two-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) approved fellowship program that provides comprehensive training in clinical rheumatology with a focus on research and quality. The program has been commended for an excellent research program, osteoporosis curriculum and faculty-trainee relationships. The program has been an integral part of the Rheumatology Department at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa., since 1975.

Our Department of Rheumatology, the fellowship program and Geisinger are committed to using the most advanced technology available including the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging and a fully integrated advanced electronic health record.
