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, identifying needed knowledge, and expanding 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 is a pediatric rheumatology mentoring program that supports the career development of fellows and junior faculty in pediatric rheumatology through educational services, facilitated networking, and a one-on-one mentor.

Creating Adult Rheumatology Mentorship in Academia (CARMA) is a mentoring program to support career development for rheumatology trainees and junior faculty as they transition to independence after fellowship.
