Advances in rheumatology occur at a rapid pace and staying abreast of important changes is a challenge for all. Both novel drug development and enhanced understanding of conventional or historic therapies have molded current day rheumatologic practice. Rheumatology has led the way in the use of outcome measures and imaging modalities in common disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and gout. The expertise of the rheumatologist has widened such that knowledge of economics, legal issues, related disorders and extraarticular disease is essential. In February 2013, the 6th annual Rheumatology Winter Clinical Symposium was held. At this meeting, faculty and participants held discussions and exchanged knowledge about new scientific data and how it may impact the care of rheumatology patients. Excerpts from some of the lectures from the Rheumatology Winter Clinical Symposium 2013 are included in this review. These and other presentations can be viewed in their entirety at
