Temple Autoimmunity Center


Educational Programs


A crucial part of the mission of the Temple Autoimmunity Center is to educate the future basic, preclinical and clinical researchers in autoimmune diseases. Students interested in training in the autoimmunity field may choose their path through several educational programs in which TAC members particpate. These programs include MD, MD/PhD, PhD and MS programs, postdoctoral fellowships, and rheumatology fellowship programs. Internships and volunteering rotations are also available for undergraduate students and are invaluable opportunities for young people to test their preference for this branch of science and medicine.



Graduate Programs

TAC members are affiliated with the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program that offers the opportunity for PhD and MS degrees with a special focus in autoimmunity. This provides the training and fundamental skills necessary to become independent researchers and teachers, with theoretical and hands-on expertise in autoimmune diseases.



Postdoctoral Research


The members of TAC are funded with research grants that support postdoctoral fellows without citizenship requirements. Postdoctoral candidates are encouraged to browse the research interests and biographies of the faculty associated with TAC and directly contact potential mentors.



Fellowship Programs


The Section of Rheumatology is committed to education and provides an active program of clinical conferences, journal clubs, rheumatology grand rounds, and a patient management conference to medical students, residents and fellows.
