The ACR and ARP want to recognize heroes of rheumatology through the new Rheumatology Change Maker program. You can nominate a peer, colleague, mentor, or anyone in the field of rheumatology who has gone above and beyond what is expected.
Are you new or returning to rheumatology? New Fundamentals of Rheumatology courses coming soon.
ARP offers a variety of online educational activities and over 45 health professional sessions at ACR Convergence, the ACR's annual meeting. The activities are intended to increase rheumatology knowledge and enhance patient care. Each covers the assessment, management, and evaluation of patients and role of the health professional team in the management of rheumatic disease. The activities were created for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers, psychologists, students, practice management staff, physicians, and/or anyone with an interest in rheumatology.
