Reumatologia este o supra specializare a medicinii interne și se ocupă cu diagnosticarea și tratarea afecțiunilor reumatice.

Reumatologii se ocupa in principal cu afectiunile clinice ale articulatiilor, ale tesuturilor moi, a bolilor autoimune, a vasculitelor si a tesutului conjunctiv. Multe dintre aceste boli sunt cunoscute ca fiind tulburari ale sistemului imunitar.

Una dintre cele mai importante schimbări în reumatologia moderna este dezvoltarea de noi medicamente numite biologice, sau agenți de modificare a bolii, care pot controla boala severa mult mai eficient.
