Rheumatoid and Inflammatory Arthritis Program

The Yale Rheumatoid Arthritis Program addresses the challenges faced by patients with all forms of inflammatory arthritis. Our program focuses on patient education and clinical research designed to advance our knowledge and treatment of arthritis.


One of our main goals is to educate each patient in our best understanding of that individual’s disease, appropriate therapies, and in resources available to those living with inflammatory arthritis. We encourage patients, and their families, to participate in all aspect of decision-making about their disease management. We work together with patients to help them achieve a high quality of life.


Our patients may choose to participate in research studies. Our research is directed at finding better clinical therapies, improving the quality of patients’ lives, increasing our understanding of inflammatory arthritis and our patients’ preferences regarding their treatment.
