ACR/CARRA Mentoring Group for Pediatric Rheumatologists
AMIGO is a pediatric rheumatology mentoring program. To address the needs of early career pediatric rheumatologists, the ACR Special Committee on Pediatric Rheumatology and the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) joined together in 2011 to develop a program to support the career development of fellows and junior faculty in pediatric rheumatology via educational services, facilitated networking, and most importantly a one-on-one mentoring program through which interested mentees are matched with mentors at other institutions.
