Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We report the results of a 1982 pilot survey of pediatric rheumatology physicians and fellowship training programs in the United States. All physicians indicating in the ARA directory that they could care for rheumatic diseases of children were surveyed, with a response rate of 57.6%. There were 35 directors of United States pediatric rheumatology programs among the respondents. The survey provided basic information concerning training and practice characteristics of respondent physicians and the sources of funding, size, and emphasis of the fellowship programs. Specific attention is given to indicators of demand for pediatric rheumatology services.
