Rheumatology is a subspecialty of internal medicine and pediatrics that focuses on the care of patients with inflammatory arthritis and autoimmune diseases.
As the only academic medical center in New Hampshire, providers in the Section of Rheumatology strive to use evidence-based therapies for the clinical care of patients with rheumatic diseases.
