Rerelease: Rheumatology Made Ridiculously Simple with Adam Brown, MD

Adam Brown, MD, is a rheumatologist at Cleveland Clinic and the host of the Rheuminations podcast. For the med students out there, we discuss why someone would choose rheumatology and why they are frequently the smartest doctors in the hospital. We discuss the basics of arthritis, how to interpret an ANA and why we shouldn’t be so laser-focused on our own organ systems if a patient isn’t improving as expected. We also discuss why gout is such an underappreciated phenomenon.

Dr. Brown went to med school at the University of New Mexico and then did residency Georgetown in Internal Medicine. He then did fellowships in rheumatology and vasculitis, both at Cleveland Clinic, where he currently practices. He authored Rheumatology Made Ridiculously Simple, a herculean feat for such a complex specialty.
