Rheumatology Fellowship

Why Train at Riley?

Riley Hospital ranks among the top children's hospitals in the 2013-2014 list of Best Children's Hospitals published by U.S. News & World Report. Riley Hospital is nationally ranked in all 10 subspecialty categories. Unfortunately, Pediatric Rheumatology is not a rated subspecialty.

Fellowship program director, Kathleen O'Neil, MD and associate program director, Stacey Tarvin, MD, provide oversight and leadership of the administrative, clinical and scholarly aspects of the training program and are dedicated to providing a rewarding and challenging experience to every fellow who joins our team. We are committed to the success of each fellow from the beginning of the program through his/her first faculty position.

Indiana University School of Medicine has a strong basic science faculty in Microbiology and Immunology, Cell Biology and Genetics who supplement the research interests of our division faculty and provide a broad range of translational research opportunities for the incoming fellow-in-training. The Wells Center for Pediatric Research is a 27,000 square foot facility dedicated to basic and translational research. Riley Rheumatology is an active clinical research site for both the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) and the Pediatric Rheumatology Collaborative Study Group (PRCSG). The fellow will have the opportunity to actively participate in these research networks, and to take part in designing collaborative research on a national and international stage.

We welcome your interest in our training program, and suggest you explore links at IUPUI, the Schools of Medicine, Public Health, Pharmacology, etc., as well as Riley Hospital for Children.
