Professor Karim Raza

Inflammatory Arthritis

Karim Raza is Professor of Clinical Rheumatology at the University of Birmingham and Honorary Consultant Rheumatologist at Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust. Specialist interests include early inflammatory arthritis and approaches to the prediction of the development of rheumatoid arthritis.


I qualified in 1993 from the University of Oxford having previously obtained a BA in Physiological Sciences. I completed general medical training in Oxford and Nottingham, where I obtained an MRCP, and then rheumatology training in Birmingham, where I obtained a CCST. In 2004 I was awarded a PhD for my work on very early rheumatoid arthritis and was appointed as Senior Lecturer in the Division of Immunity and Infection at the University of Birmingham and consultant rheumatologist at the Trust. I have research groups based both at the Trust and the University of Birmingham.
