Dr. Kaitlin Quinn received her medical degree from New York Medical College.  She completed her internal medicine residency training and rheumatology fellowship training at Georgetown University Hospital.  She subsequently completed a two-year Vasculitis Clinical Research Consortium - Vasculitis Foundation Fellowship within the NIAMS Vasculitis Translational Research Program where she focused on vasculitis from a clinical and research perspective.  She is board certified in Internal Medicine and Rheumatology. Dr. Quinn also has a vasculitis clinic at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital where she is actively seeing patients.

Research Statement

Dr. Quinn’s research interests include clinical research in many different types of vasculitis.  Her primary research interest has focused on imaging in large-vessel vasculitis, including giant cell arteritis and Takayasu’s arteritis.  She has also conducted studies in ANCA-associated vasculitis and has an interest in the development of outcome measures in vasculitis.  She is involved in the OMERACT Vasculitis Working Group.
