Welcome to The Division of Rheumatology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, Texas. Our division is here to provide the highest quality of care to patients with rheumatic diseases while training fellows, residents and students with up-to-date and evidence based knowledge of disease processes and treatments.

We are in clinical and basic research in antiphospholipid syndrome, systemic lupus, and performing clinical trials in rheumatoid arthritis and gout. We are also a research site for Treat-to-Target research trial which is a NIH sponsored trial out of Harvard.
