The 2020 Division and Program Directors Conference has been canceled.

As you know, the 2020 Division and Program Directors Conference was canceled due to growing concerns over the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Our team is exploring alternatives for delivering the excellent content that was scheduled for the Chicago meeting and in the coming weeks, we will share our plan of action.

The success of rheumatology divisions and training programs is a critical factor to the success of rheumatology as a subspecialty. The Division and Program Directors Conference provides the educational opportunity for these leaders to enhance their programs and professional development.

Division Directors Conference

The Division Directors Conference exposes attendees to key issues involved in running successful academic divisions of rheumatology. Attendees will hear from experts in the field and their peers on how to handle every day challenges faced by academic institutions. Professional development is promoted by creating a venue for the exchange of ideas about the common challenges faced in graduate medical education and rheumatology divisions.

Program Directors Conference

The Program Directors Conference exposes attendees to new trends in graduate medical education and accreditation and seeks to improve the ability of Program Directors to evaluate fellows in training and their understanding of Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requirements. Professional development is promoted by creating a venue for the exchange of ideas about the common challenges faced in graduate medical education and fellowship training programs.

Target Audience
These conferences are designed for rheumatology program directors, assistant program directors, division directors, and educators.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Develop faculty skills in providing accurate, succinct, and substantial feedback to staff and learners in rheumatology
  • Enhance understanding of conceptual frameworks for different educational strategies and tools to teach rheumatology
  • Implement new and more effective retention and recruitment strategies for rheumatology division staff and fellow trainees
