John Hopkins University


Dr. Haque is developing an interactive web-based rheumatology curriculum to expose internal medicine residents to rheumatology during their training. The curriculum will be published on the John Hopkins Physician Education & Assessment Center, an educational website that is used by nearly 200 internal medicine training programs and 11,000 internal medicine residents. This training better prepares primary care providers for diagnosing and treating patients with rheumatic diseases. It also could encourage more future doctors to become rheumatologists and dedicate their careers to caring for patients like Nancy .
