The Department of Veterans Affairs NJ Health Care System
The New Jersey VA Medical Center is a teaching hospital affiliated with Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, located 3 miles away from the University Hospital. The fellows will take part in outpatient rheumatology practice at the VA center through general rheumatology clinics. The rotation has a heavy emphasis on rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthropathies and crystalline arthropathy. This patient population provides an ideal complement to the clinical spectrum at the other campus. The inpatient consult service provides a wealth of opportunity for mastering procedural skills as well as seeing a variety of rheumatologic disorders.
