Clinician Educator Resources

Investing in rheumatology training is essential to building a strong and capable workforce. Clinician educators are responsible for developing educational programs, instructing rheumatologists to meet the accreditation standards, and promoting an atmosphere of quality care for patients. Clinician educators must be better prepared for teaching and committed to advancing rheumatology. They play a critical role in attracting the next generation of rheumatologists to provide quality care for patients.

Social Media Guide

Understanding the tools people use and how these outlets can help share your message is as important as a more traditional media approach, such as writing letters to the editor or op-ed pieces. Serving the needs of patients online via social media efforts can result in a stronger online presence, more patients, stronger referrals, and patient education that saves time.

For more information on social media and sharing health information online, read our Social Media Guide.
