General Pediatric Rheumatology

The Division of Rheumatology is committed to delivering excellent clinical care and participating in education and research efforts for children with inflammatory conditions. We work closely with our colleagues in ophthalmology, orthopedics, dermatology, neurology, nephrology, adolescent medicine, radiology, nursing, child life, social work, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy. We often interact with The Arthritis Society and Cassie and Friends around advocacy projects, community resources, and therapeutic services for our patients. Transitioning of patients turning 18 to an adult rheumatologist is facilitated through our Transition Clinic, which is run by both Pediatric and Adult Rheumatology.
