International Visiting Fellows Exchange Program

2018 ACR-IRA / ACR-PANLAR International Fellows Exchange Programs

The ACR is pleased to collaborate with the Indian Rheumatology Association (IRA) and the Pan American League of Associations for Rheumatology (PANLAR) to offer International Visiting Fellows Exchange Programs. These programs support scientific collaboration between members of the ACR, IRA, and PANLAR, and junior rheumatologists representing each of those organizations. Each award recipient will participate in a four-week exchange in a foreign country and the 2018 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting in the United States.
