Clinics and Programs

The McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) provides the best quality of care for rheumatic patients, with the Division’s world-renowned Lupus/Vasculitis Clinic. In addition, it develops partnerships and obtains national recognition and leadership through the Young Adults with Rheumatic Diseases (YARD) Transition Program, the Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and the Musculo-Skeletal programs. 

Arthritis, rheumatic diseases, and related conditions include disorders that commonly affect the joints, tendons, ligaments, bones, and muscles. Some rheumatic diseases also can involve the internal organs.


With its clinical and laboratory research on Systemic Autoimmune Rheumatic Diseases, the Division has achieved an international reputation of excellence as a quality care and teaching centre. These clinical activities fall increasingly under the quaternary designation.

Distributed Services

The Division’s clinical activities are further distributed within the MUHC and in the McGill RUIS in order to use the existing corridors of services as much as possible. Specialty clinics are favoured, using the multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary approach. The Rheumatology division integrates clinical and laboratory research, teaching and health care.
