Welcome to St. Luke’s Rheumatology Fellowship Program! Our program founded in 2024 is a two-year ACGME Accredited training program based out of our Campus in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania offering two clinical fellowship positions per year. Our mission is to train physicians who will provide exceptional care and leadership within the field of Rheumatology. Our fellows will learn how to apply evidence-based medicine and demonstrate high-quality clinical skills in the management of rheumatic conditions and diseases.

Our mission is to develop future rheumatologists who will be compassionate, well-rounded, and competent in the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases. Over 2 years, fellows will receive comprehensive clinical training through their exposure to diverse patient populations in an ambulatory and tertiary care setting capable of providing exceptional care. Our training program also provides experience in musculoskeletal ultrasound and pediatric rheumatology, in addition to focusing on a core didactic curriculum. We look forward to providing a nurturing environment for fellows to develop their knowledge and skills to make meaningful contributions to patient care and the rheumatology community.”
