Rheumatology

The subspecialty of rheumatology includes the evaluation and   treatment   of   a   wide   array   of   inflammatory,   non- inflammatory,  and  degenerative  diseases  that  affect  the musculoskeletal and other organ systems.

The  NUHS  Rheumatology  Senior  Residency  Programme strives for excellence in all aspects of residency education and  training.  The  purpose  of  our  rheumatology programme   is   to   train   residents   to   be   accomplished practitioners  and  consultants  in  the  rheumatic  diseases; to encourage their professional development and scholarly pursuits  that  ensure  they  remain  current  in  the  field  of rheumatology  and  immunology  throughout  their  careers, and to foster their interest in contributing to future advancement of the field.

Graduate  rheumatologists  will  meet  the  requirements  to be eligible for the local advanced trainee exit exam and be certified as proficient to practise independently in either an academic institution or in private clinical practice.

Our senior residency programme  consists  of multiple areas  of  exposure  over  a  period  of  three  years,  of  which two years will fulfill the ACGME-I requirements. The programme  will navigate  the   residents  through a  range of  ward   and outpatient-based clinical proficiencies in the field of rheumatology,  with  emphasis  on  building  competencies in  clinical  patient  management,  bedside  rheumatological procedures   including   musculoskeletal   ultrasonography, interprofessional interactions and research.
