A Message from Philip L. Cohen, MD
Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Rheumatology Section
The Section of Rheumatology provides care for patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Patients are seen every day, and there is a weekly Lupus Clinic. Several ongoing research projects are underway using samples from Rheumatology patients. An onsite Infusion Center facilitates administration of biological and other intravenous therapy and also benefits clinical research. The Section is also responsible for inpatient consultations in Rheumatology at Temple University Hospital.
The Section of Rheumatology is committed to education and welcomes students to its popular elective. Residents regularly rotate through our service. We have an active program of clinical conferences, a weekly Grand Rounds, and weekly didactic teaching. Fellows rotate through the Pediatric Rheumatology Section at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children and the Orthopaedic Clinic.
