Pediatric Rheumatology Residents Program
To motivate outstanding pediatric residents to pursue subspecialty training in pediatric rheumatology, the Pediatric Rheumatology Residents Program provides an opportunity to attend ACR Convergence, the ACR's annual meeting. The program is designed to introduce pediatric residents to the possibility of subspecialty training in pediatric rheumatology at an early period in their residency. By identifying residents who have demonstrated interest in rheumatology but are undecided about a subspecialty, we hope to have a positive impact on workforce issues that continue to challenge pediatric rheumatology.
