ACR/CARRA Mentoring Interest Group for Pediatric Rheumatologists

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.


Mentors: Pediatric rheumatologist. ACR membership is required.
Mentees: Pediatric rheumatology fellows and junior faculty. ACR membership is required.

Time Commitment

We anticipate a 5–10 hour per year time commitment, consisting of phone calls and two face-to-face meetings a year.
