In any field, having a professional mentor can help individuals develop and advance their careers. Mentors affect the professional life of a mentee by fostering insight, identify needed knowledge and expand growth opportunities. The ACR believes mentor/mentee relationships at all levels is central for a sustainable rheumatology workforce. The ACR has two mentoring programs: AMIGO and Choose Rheumatology!.
AMIGO is a pediatric rheumatology mentoring program. To address the needs of early career pediatric rheumatologists, the ACR Special Committee on Pediatric Rheumatology and the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) joined together in 2011 to develop a program to support the career development of fellows and junior faculty in pediatric rheumatology via educational services, facilitated networking, and most importantly a one-on-one mentoring program through which interested mentees are matched with mentors at other institutions.

The Choose Rheumatology! recruitment campaign aims to increase the rheumatology workforce in quantity and quality. We believe exposure to rheumatology through mentorship is the first step in recruitment. Mentoring relationships are invaluable for both mentor and mentee, and many students are currently in search of a mentor to learn more about a medical specialty they are considering. You could be one-step or call away from helping a student or resident Choose Rheumatology! as their medical specialty. Choose Rheumatology! mentors serve as a contact person when needed and make an impact in the early stages of one’s medical career. Learn more about the guidelines below.
