The Annual Rheumatology Medical Education Conference has been a huge beneficiary for rheumatologists around the country. Hosted in downtown Baltimore by Johns Hopkins doctors, this two-day conference offers speaker sessions, courses and Q&As on groundbreaking newsworthy rheumatological topics. Going on its 12th year, this is an event you won’t want to miss.
Johns Hopkins Division of Rheumatology dedicates a large amount of time to educating their patients about their diseases so that they are able to understand the entire scope of their conditions. There is a large effort in disseminating information to patients and their families in order to inform them about everything they need to know about their disease moving forward.
The Arthritis Center has seven clinical doctors who work for the Division of Rheumatology that are very specialized in what they care for, giving our patients the best of the best care in the field. The Arthritis Center doctors also work closely with researchers, scientists and nurses to give patients a complete wholistic care.
Dr. Bingham walks us through what patients should expect during their clinical visit. Because Johns Hopkins is a research institution, trainees such as residents, fellows and medical students may be interacting with you during your session.
Medical research takes many different forms, yet we focus ours on the patient. With the patient’s help on completing questionnaires about how they deal with their diseases, doctors and scientists can further the research initiative of comprehending all aspects of rheumatic illnesses.
