Virtual Rheumatology Program (V-FIT)
V-FIT is a collection of online courses developed by rheumatology experts to address specific education needs of fellows in training. There are courses for adult and pediatric rheumatology fellows.
The creation of Rheum4Science grew from the conviction that the teaching of science is declining in rheumatology. The target audience is rheumatology fellows in training, medical students, residents, practicing rheumatologists, and rheumatology healthcare providers.
