Description
A comprehensive clinical experience in rheumatology and clinical immunology. Students attend five weekly clinics in rheumatology, and clinical immunology, gaining familiarity with the evaluation of new patients and the longitudinal follow-up of complex rheumatological problems such as SLE and vasculitis and common rheumatological problems such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout and spondyloarthropathies. Inpatient consultations provide experience with management of the acute crisis. Journal clubs, noon conferences, and division rounds provide didactic teaching. The costs and benefits associated with evaluation and treatment are emphasized. Stanford Students wishing to do this clerkship must receive prior approval from Clerkship Director before registering.
