Attendees enjoyed networking opportunities, guided poster hall tours and presentations that provided an introduction to rheumatology. Among the attendees were recipients of the Foundation’s ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting Scholarship, which offers complimentary registration and up to $1,500 in travel expenses for students and residents in areas underserved by rheumatology professionals to attend the ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting.
The Student and Resident Experience is just one of the many ways the Foundation is working to address the growing shortage of rheumatology professionals. The Foundation also offers preceptorships for students and residents to work with an established mentor in the field, as well as research funding for rheumatology professionals from all career levels.
