About this section

The Rheumatology & Rehabilitation Section’s aim is to advance the scientific study of rheumatology, which is that branch of medicine concerned with the disease of connective tissue and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and to advance the scientific study of rehabilitation, which is the restoration of optimum function of people suffering from disability, particularly of the locomotors system.
