Our faculty members are specialists of arthritis and rheumatic diseases.
The Division of Rheumatology is currently recognized as high performing by U.S. News & World Report 2017–2018. Our mission is to promote prevention, cure, and relief of suffering caused by such diseases through the education of the next generation of rheumatologists and investigators; by developing new knowledge through innovative, multi-disciplinary research; and by providing patient-centered, integrated clinical care and empowering patient education through Feinberg-affiliated care sites.
The Division of Rheumatology invites you to attend one of our upcoming Grand Rounds. In addition to featuring speakers from within the Northwestern Medicine health system, we are thrilled to welcome guests from other academic medical centers to our weekly seminar series.
Our fellowship in rheumatology prepares individuals for careers in academic clinical or clinical rheumatology. The focus of our program is the development of academic rheumatologists and scientists competent in the treatment and investigation of rheumatic diseases. The fellowship consists of a first year of comprehensive inpatient and ambulatory clinical rheumatology training, followed by a one to two year mentored investigator phase with concurrent ambulatory clinical experience.

As part of an academic medical center, the Division of Rheumatology aims to improve the human health through scientific research.
The Division of Rheumatology has faculty members involved in all phases of the cycle of medical research; from the lab bench to the bedside and back. Medical research begins in a laboratory, with studies that are concerned with the fundamental biologic functions of the body's tissues and the ways in which those functions are disrupted in disease. The knowledge generated in the laboratory is then validated in the real world, putting it to practical use and pointing the way towards actual changes in patient care. Finally, analysis of the outcomes of current and new therapies allow us to identify areas where interventions are working or not working, and is the way by which new medicines and other new treatments come into widespread use in actual medical practice.
