Education Partners

ACR Convergence, the ACR's annual meeting, is the premier meeting for rheumatology professionals worldwide. Rheumatology professionals report the meeting is inspirational and energizing; however, they also report it is a challenge to absorb all the key content. To address this challenge, the ACR seeks quality education partners to help share and reinforce ACR Convergence content year-round.

 ACR Convergence 2020 – All-Virtual Annual Meeting

ACR Convergence 2020, the world’s premier virtual rheumatology experience, is happening online, November 5-9.

Now, more than ever, the rheumatology community needs to maintain connection. ACR Convergence 2020 provides an opportunity to do just that. This fully virtual meeting is where rheumatology can collaborate, celebrate, innovate, and learn!

Get ready for an all-encompassing, all-virtual experience designed for the global rheumatology community. Get ready for ACR Convergence 2020.

We’ve given the ACR’s annual meeting a new name and a fresh look, and reimagined #ACR20 without losing the elements you care about most: stellar rheumatology education and outstanding networking opportunities.

We will be sharing Education Partners details in the coming weeks and months, and we promise to keep you fully informed.

The American College of Rheumatology is the leading authority and trusted partner of rheumatology professionals. By providing comprehensive education to improve the knowledge, competence, and performance of those who treat/care for patients with/at risk for musculoskeletal diseases as well as systemic autoimmune disorders – the ACR empowers rheumatology professionals to excel in their specialty. We look forward to collaborating with you to improve patient outcomes through education.
