Women's Health Fellowship Program

As the nationwide shortage of rheumatologists continues, UCB would like to encourage the development of future Thought Leaders in key areas of unmet needs. By creating additional training opportunities for current rheumatology fellows, UCB specifically hopes to increase women's health expertise in the rheumatology community. This program will support the yearlong training of up to three rheumatology fellows ($100,000 each) with a specialized focus on women's health-related issues, specifically in the context of inflammatory diseases. UCB would provide sponsorship through the institutes of training. Institutions receiving support from this program will select a second-year rheumatology fellow recipient with interest in pursuing an additional year of study focused on women with inflammatory diseases. 

At the completion of the program, trainees would enter the rheumatology workforce not only with core clinical skills, but with additional specialized education on women's health-related issues. 

The application for the 2024-2025 fellowship year is now closed. Please check back in May 2024 for important information about the 2025-2026 application cycle.
