About Us

The Pediatric Rheumatology Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine is but one component of the largest pediatric departments in the United States and up to two fellows per year may be accepted.

The section has an active Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited fellowship program led by Dr. Amanda Brown along with an associate director Dr. Andrea Ramirez. Dr. Brown oversees the clinical and research training activities for the fellows.

Some of our recent graduates have completed master-level degrees as part of their fellowship training. Most graduates in the last decade have continued to practice in Texas. Of note, three separate pediatric rheumatology centers have been started by former Texas Children’s Rheumatology fellows and include: University of Texas at Houston, Cook Children’s Hospital, and Driscoll Children’s Hospital.  

We are one of the largest pediatric rheumatology centers in North America with seven rheumatologists, one advanced nurse practitioner and six fellows. Our section is involved in national pediatric rheumatology mentoring initiatives and institutional efforts to enrich the educational experiences of pediatric subspecialty trainees. We are committed to providing high quality and personalized patient care, ACGME-accredited medical training and education, and clinical and basic science research in pediatric rheumatology.

The Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world, provides an exciting, diverse, and stimulating learning environment for the fellows. The Department of Pediatrics is a national leader in research funding and is a leader in international child health, hematology/oncology, and neurology research.
