In addition to our rheumatologists, a multidisciplinary faculty, including experts in heart disease, infectious disease, psychiatry, osteoporosis and primary care sports medicine provide comprehensive care to our patients and enrich the collaborative research that is advancing knowledge and improving the lives of patients.
Together, our rheumatologists, pediatric rheumatologists, internists and other medical specialists are committed to providing the best possible care to our patients, discovering and applying new scientific knowledge that advances healthcare, and training the next generation of clinicians, scientists and future academic leaders.
Given the extraordinary medical advances that have occurred in the past few years, HSS physicians are now poised to prevent many disorders, cure a significant portion of them, and universally improve the lives of patients who have rheumatic disease. Employing a multidisciplinary diagnostic and therapeutic approach that is unique to this institution, you can be assured of the best and most up-to-date and caring treatment.
Our Centers of Excellence are multidisciplinary and innovative programs, established by our expert faculty with the goal of improving the lives of patients with chronic musculoskeletal, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Through their development of patient-oriented initiatives in quality of care, research and education, the Centers of Excellence enrich the clinical services offered by the hospital. The academic programs of the Centers of Excellence integrate the research advances of our scientists with the high level of care for patients seen at HSS.
We are committed to state-of-the-art on-going research which will advance the care of patients with rheumatic disease, now and in the future.
Education of medical students and physicians-in-training is a high priority of the Division, as demonstrated by our development of the Rheumatology Academy of Medical Educators. Clinical care and academic activities are organized around Centers of Excellence that coordinate medical management, research, and professional and patient education relevant to a specific disease area or rheumatic diseases of children.
