Rheumatology, a subspecialty of internal medicine, focuses on diagnosing and treating rheumatic and musculoskeletal disorders. Rheumatologists treat arthritis, some autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal pain disorders and metabolic bone disorders - most commonly osteoporosis.
Rheumatologists are Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and use the post-nominals FRACP. The Australian Rheumatology Association is the professional body representing rheumatologists in Australia.
In 2009 there were 258 specialists working in rheumatology, as their main specialty of practice. (AIHW 2011. Medical labour force 2009. AIHW bulletin no. 89. Cat. no. AUS 138. Canberra: AIHW)
