The Section of Rheumatology runs the Rheumatology Subspecialty Education Program. The section has 6 GFT and 9 non-GFT physicians and 0 PhD researchers.. Rheumatology is a sub-specialty in internal medicine, devoted to diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases.

The Section is based at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg with seven full time faculty members who provide ambulatory care services as well as clinical consultation and inpatient care to patients with all types of musculoskeletal and autoimmune diseases. We are committed to a mission of providing outstanding clinical care for both the most complex patients as well as vulnerable populations; all levels of medical education; and cutting edge research to improve the health, treatments, outcome, and quality of life for our patients.

The Section is home to an endowed Rheumatology Research Chair. Our researchers are at the forefront of research ranging from basic science and translational research to epidemiology and clinical trials, and reflect the varied interests and activities of our faculty members: the pathogenesis of rheumatoid synovitis and the mechanisms involved in the initiation of synovial inflammation, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatic disease in First Nations people, cohort studies to predict and optimize RA outcomes, biomarkers and disease pathogenesis, scleroderma, and disparities in rheumatology care.

A major strength of the Section is the strong collaborations we have cultivated with other sections, and departments at the University of Manitoba, and with other leading universities, institutions and organizations in Canada and abroad.

Faculty members are actively engaged in undergraduate and post-graduate education. The Rheumatology Subspecialty Education Program is a two-year program undertaken by candidates with training in Internal Medicine. Residents must have completed three or four years of General Internal Medicine training prior to entering the program.
