Rheumatology is a subspecialty of internal medicine and pediatrics devoted to the care and treatment of rheumatic diseases involving joints and soft tissues and conditions of connective tissues. For many years, this has been one of the most underserved medical subspecialties in Alaska requiring many Alaskans to leave the state to seek services.
