Upon the announcement of his retirement in November 2014, the VF Board of Directors chose to recognize Dr. Hoffman by funding a yearlong fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Vasculitis Care and Research. The Vasculitis Foundation Gary S. Hoffman Fellowship was announced on April 28, 2015 at a Cleveland Clinic event.  Click here to read about Dr. Hoffman’s work in the field of vasculitis. 

    The VF Fellowship Program provides the opportunity for one- or two- year tracks designed to support the training of physician scientists who wish to gain clinical expertise in vasculitis and who may also wish to pursue an investigational career in this field. The fellowships are conducted through Vasculitis Centers where there has been a track record of training individuals in vasculitis.
