The Rheumatism Society of the District of Columbia
about us

The Rheumatism Society of the District of Columbia is the first chartered local Society for rheumatologists. We have been in existence for over 60 years, organizing local Rheumatologists and creating a solid foundation for the care of patients with rheumatic diseases in the greater District of Columbia metropolitan area. With providers from the District of Columbia as well as Montgomery County, Prince Georges County, Fairfax County and Arlington County, we have a membership of over 200 practitioners from private practice and university based Rheumatology divisions in perhaps the most influential city in the United States. We have a rich tradition of serving our community and the country at large with our interactions with our community.

Our mission is to serve the life-long educational needs of rheumatologists, implement the best care practices for our rheumatic patients, and foster a sense of community amongst local rheumatologists.
