Education, Research and Quality Improvement
Our division is committed to teaching physicians, residents, and medical students how to identify and treat pediatric rheumatology conditions. We have a developing research program that studies juvenile arthritis auto-inflammatory disease and genetics of rheumatic disease in Qatar, musculoskeletal pain, and obesity. We may ask if you or your child is interested in participating in research studies, so that we can better understand these conditions and develop more effective treatments. We are collecting quality metrics so we can dynamically improve and keep your child’s illness in remission.
