Employment Resources and Professions Available to Rheumatology Graduates
People with a degree in rheumatology can work in a variety of areas. This includes the hospital environment where they work with patients in the orthopedic or emergency departments (hip fractures), participate in surgery (knee meniscus tears), and radiology (imaging bone and cartilage). They can also work in the pharmacology department where they develop new drugs and improve on current ones.
Rheumatologists can also work in nursing homes with the elderly, as many elderly people suffer from relevant disorders such as arthritis, hip fractures, and other joint problems. Work is also available in physiotherapy clinics where they work in collaboration with therapists to aid people to walk again or regain lost muscle mass after convalescence.
Many rheumatologists also conduct research to determine the cause and better treatments for the various rheumatological diseases. This can happen in a hospital, research center, or university environment, often in collaboration with other institutes.
