Rheumatology

The Section of Pediatric Rheumatology provides diagnosis, coordinated treatment and education for children with rheumatic, collagen-vascular and musculoskeletal disorders, and their families.

We have and will continue to reach out to the many brilliant clinicians, educators and researchers at ACH for joint care models, cross-disciplinary educational events and collaborative research endeavours. Our clinical and translational research programs - including neuroinflammation, morphea, systemic vasculitis and lupus, transition, early arthritis and autoinflammation - are a tremendous source of learning, hopefully resulting in improved patient outcomes.

We are also closely aligned with our adult rheumatology colleagues, working together with young adults who have rheumatic diseases at the YARD clinic.  

A physician Referral is required for all Clinics. Please contact your physician or family doctor.

The section promotes ongoing research in collaboration with the Department and other partners.
