Academic Interests

Dr. Dua has a special interest in teaching patients, medical students and residents about achieving optimal management of autoimmune rheumatic conditions. She currently serves as the Fellowship Program Director for Rheumatology. Dr. Dua has been actively involved in developing curricular milestones that will be part of the Next Accreditation System and she has worked closely with the GME, Internal Medicine and other Rheumatology Program Directors to gain a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges that programs will face during this transition. In this position, she has also developed an ultrasound training opportunity for the fellows to work with a private practice rheumatologist in the nearby area. This will enable the fellows to not only learn valuable skills, but will also expose them to new practice patterns and opportunities for mentorship.
