Education

There are opportunities for clinical fellows and faculty from other divisions to participate in the Rare Diseases clinic and meetings to raise education and awareness. This will help accelerate the process of making definitive diagnoses and obtaining appropriate therapy.

Lectures will be provided to the residents and fellows in pediatrics and internal medicine to further increase awareness and expedite referrals. The Center will run a seminar series that will bring junior rising stars and senior leaders to campus for various workshops and discussions about Rare Diseases.

There will also be various advocacy groups that service Los Angeles and California that will support patients with immunodeficiencies. Some of these community outreach programs include sponsor related educational seminars for patients which include activities to encourage patients to meet and help each other. We are also encouraging near campus gatherings to boost collaboration and discussion about the topic of Rare Diseases.
