Patient Care

The Clinical Program in Rheumatology at UCSF is dedicated to patient care, teaching, and clinical research.

There are over 5,000 visits per year to the Rheumatology clinic where patients from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds receive state-of-the-art care from outstanding clinicians. Several of our physicians consistently appear in lists of Best Doctors in San Francisco and Best Doctors in America. Superb clinical teaching and research combine to make this one of the most sought after Rheumatology training programs in the country.


ShoulderGiven its small size, Rheumatology is well represented, even over-represented, in the Department of Medicine's Council of Master Clinicians.
