Our global community represents more than 100 countries from around the world, including Japan, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and Switzerland.
To empower rheumatology professionals to excel in their specialty.
Your ACR/ARP membership puts you on the forefront of cutting-edge information with countless opportunities to expand your network. Your ACR/ARP membership is also about your team and its strong foundation of education and support.
ACR/ARP international members receive the same benefits as domestic members. Enjoy access to journals (Arthritis & Rheumatology and/or Arthritis Care & Research), participate in educational meetings such as the Global Rheumatology Summit, learn from the best at the Global Meet the Experts webinar series, and network with the worldwide ACR/ARP community. Additionally, each year, the ACR/ARP recognizes a rheumatologist or rheumatology professional outside of the U.S. and Canada for exceptional contributions in public service and advocacy to the global rheumatology community with the Distinguished International Rheumatology Professional Award.
