The autoimmune clinic block rotation will include experience in Rheumatology, Dermatology, Nephrology, Allergy, and Pulmonary/Interstitial lung diseases. The rotation will provide the resident with a focused experience in immune mediated diseases as well as the prescribing and monitoring of immune modulating and suppressing therapies. The curriculum will include a review of immunology and articles regarding the diagnosis and treatment of immune related diseases. The resident will meet on Wed Afternoon with the block director to discuss the readings. Four times per year the resident will have the opportunity to travel to local Indian Health Service clinics to see patients with mainly rheumatoid arthritis. One of the expectations of the rotation will be for the resident to present a 15 minute power point presentation on a topic of choice regarding an immune mediated disease.
