The society has since played a major part in increasing the number of arthritis specialists, called rheumatologists, from 4 in 1949 to nearly 300 by the 1990s. There are 16 RDUs now operating in Canadian university medical schools, which serve as focal points for a nationwide network for patient care and education, as well as ongoing clinical and scientific research. The Arthritis Society has a national administrative office in Toronto, division offices in each province and nearly 1000 community branches throughout Canada. It allocates more than $5 million per year in donations to its research, medical workforce and public-education programs.
