Education Partners

The ACR/ARP Annual Meeting is the premier meeting for rheumatology professionals worldwide. In 5 1/2 days over 460 hours of educational content dedicated to advances across rheumatology research and clinical applications is delivered. 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 the ACR/ARP Annual Meeting content year round.

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.

About the Education Partners Pilot Program

The pilot program encourages the development of activities to disseminate content from the 2019 ACR/ARP Annual Meeting to healthcare providers that treat patients with rheumatic diseases, including rheumatologists, dermatologists, primary care practitioners, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.

Educational activities that provide content to patients with rheumatic diseases will also be considered. Patient information activities/materials must be free from influence or the appearance of the influence from commercial entities.

Through this pilot program, the ACR will designate up to three approved education partners for 2019.
