Join the 300 fellow rheumatology health professionals who have taken advantage of the online Advanced Rheumatology Course. The Advanced Rheumatology Course, formerly known as the Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant Postgraduate Rheumatology Training Program, is a comprehensive rheumatology training program for physicians, fellows-in-training, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other clinicians interested in rheumatology. The online course contains 19 modules organized into 3 tracks (adult, pediatric, and combined). Each module includes learning objectives, challenge questions, audio lecture presentation, references, and an assessment. Graduates who complete all module assessments within their registered track receive a certificate of completion and CME credit. Member discounts are available for ARHP members.

If you are passionate about the ACR Research and Education Foundation's mission to advance research and training to improve the health of people with rheumatic disease, we want you to share your story.
As part of the ongoing Within Our Reach: Finding a Cure for Rheumatoid Arthritis campaign, the REF is recruiting rheumatologists, investigators, and health professionals to join the From the Field Speakers Bureau. Our From the Field volunteers will gather in select cities to help share advances in research, treatment, and care with individuals and families impacted by rheumatoid arthritis.
As a From the Field member, you help:
Provide patients and patient families struggling with RA the opportunity to learn cutting edge information that might ultimately impact treatment and care
Communicate hope for progress
Directly impact the Within Our Reach campaign, leading to increased funding opportunities for future research
