Rennie Howard, MD

I am board certified in both Internal Medicine and Rheumatology. I graduated from Princeton University with a bachelor's degree in Anthropology, and received my Medical Degree from the Medical School for International Health at Ben Gurion University in Israel, in collaboration with Columbia University Medical Center. I completed my internship and residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital, University of Miami, and went on to complete my fellowship in Rheumatology at NYU Langone Medical Center where I served as Chief Fellow. My research focused on osteoarthritis in the setting of gout and hyperuricemia. I was the recipient of the 2011 Distinguished Fellow Award from the American College of Rheumatology.

I joined a private practice in New York City after fellowship where I stayed for four years while also holding a voluntary faculty position NYU School of Medicine. During this time, I realized that I truly chose a career for which I have great passion. Rheumatology requires a wealth of knowledge that is rapidly expanding with the ever increasing understanding of the pathophysiology of the diseases we diagnose and treat, and the development of new therapies. I have also found much gratification in the opportunities to develop ongoing relationships with my patients. I was absolutely thrilled to find the Denver Arthritis Clinic which is an excellent group providing the highest quality of care in the field of rheumatology. I therefore decided to move to beautiful Colorado with my three children.

I currently provide specialty care in Rheumatology at two of the Denver Arthritis Clinic's offices in Lakewood and Lowry. In addition to Rheumatology consultation services, I perform diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound.
