Get Involved: Submit a Mini-Curriculum
The ACR is accepting applications for mini-curriculums, which are educational activities or curriculums to enhance the ACR Core Curriculum Outline. The target content of mini-curriculums includes:
- Highly specific topics from which all rheumatology learners could benefit
- Content that represents knowledge gaps in the Core Curriculum Outline
- Content in which there are insufficient local resources at most programs to adequately teach
The Curriculum Subcommittee of the ACR Committee on Rheumatology Training and Workforce (COTW) will review submissions to ensure the proposal contains the target content.
