Division of Rheumatology and Molecular Immunology.

The Division of Rheumatology and Molecular Immunology is interested in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect the joints, connective tissues diseases, and autoimmune diseases. Areas of expertise include rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, gout and systemic lupus erythematosus.

Six board-certified academic rheumatologists and four fellows make up the Division of Rheumatology and Molecular Immunology, which provides rheumatological consultative services to the community, the Medical Center, the University Medical Pavilion and the G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. In addition, the division is actively involved in academic and research activities in a broad spectrum of rheumatological and immunological avenues.

As director of the UMMC Department of Medicine’s Division of Rheumatology and Molecular Immunology, I am honored to work with a devoted group of talented faculty, advanced practice practitioners, fellows, nurses and staff, all who are committed to state-of-the-art Rheumatology patient care. In the past five years, our division has grown substantially to meet the increasing need for rheumatology specialists. We plan for continued growth and recruitment in the future.

"I am thankful I am a part of the rheumatology division at UMMC as I feel like we are a family, supporting one another while we learn and grow as physicians in different stages of life. Our trainees really make our job worthwhile, driving me to continually learn so I can fulfill my title as a clinician-educator."
