These two new programs will assist APNs and PAs in more rapidly assimilating critical rheumatology knowledge and skills with less required training. This should facilitate more effective and efficient integration of APNs and PAs into collaborative rheumatology practices and ultimately improve access to and quality of care for people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases. The ARHP is proud to add these two educational programs to our portfolio of outstanding educational products.
