“Best of” Second Annual Rheumatology Summit for Fellows: Optimizing Therapy While Reducing Risk

Rheumatology has seen rapid growth in both basic science and clinical understanding in recent years, much of which is inadequately addressed in medical training programs. There has also been an increase in the number of rheumatology fellowship programs to meet the increasing demand. To address gaps in knowledge and training in medical training programs regarding the management of patients with rheumatic disease, Vindico Medical Education held a day-long virtual educational activity for rheumatology fellows, led by an interdisciplinary panel of experts, addressing the treatment of patients with rheumatic disease as well as the management of associated complications and comorbidities. This “Best of” program provides highlighted presentations from that program.
