4th Year Medical Student in Good Standing
James Katz, MD
We welcome one medical student at a time for a four week clinical rotation at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS). The student will be involved in the ongoing care of a wide spectrum of rheumatology diseases occurring in patients participating in research protocols. These clinical activities frequently require extensive interaction among a variety of specialists. Students have access to the enormous resources of the NIH and one of the finest medical libraries in the United States to search for information about the patients they are seeing. Weekly rheumatology rounds and journal clubs are held and the student is expected to attend and present a case at the conclusion of the rotation. There is no required evening or weekend duty.
Note: one day is allowed for off-site interviews. A second day for interviews may be requested if done in advance of the elective.
