The Rheumatology Research Foundation is partnering with the American Academy of Pediatrics to further refine the award and provide a balanced selection process. With the help of the AAP, the Rheumatology Research Foundation hopes to further promote the award among the pediatric residency programs and incorporate AAP into the peer review and selection process. For more information about the AAP’s involvement please contact Laura Laskosz.
The program has identified institutions where no pediatric rheumatology program or expertise exists. The review committee will invite up to 12 of these eligible institutions to participate in the program each year, and will match each institution with a Visiting Professor on a rotating basis.
In an effort to expand our list of potential visiting professors, we would like to encourage qualified pediatric rheumatology professors who have NOT participated in the program in the past to apply (see online application link below). For inquiries regarding prior participation; please view our past award recipients page.
If your institution does not have a pediatric rheumatology training program, and you would like to participate in the program; please contact the Foundation.
All applicants and award recipients must abide by Rheumatology Research Foundation Awards and Grants Policy at all times.
The deadline for submission has passed. Please check back Spring 2014.
Funding for this award is made possible through an endowment provided by Amgen, Inc.
