For nearly 40 years, the Advances in Rheumatology course has been influential in educating generations of physicians and allied health care professionals on the over 100 rheumatic conditions which now encompass the specialty. A collaboration between Harvard Medical School’s two largest teaching hospitals, the Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the course not only focuses on rheumatic diseases, but offers additional perspectives from other medical disciplines, such as dermatology, gastroenterology, neurology, dentistry, and infectious disease.

Advances in Rheumatology targets the practicing and academic rheumatologist, rheumatology trainee, and allied health professional seeking to enhance their clinical skills and increase their knowledge with the latest breakthroughs in the diagnosis, treatment, and pathophysiology of rheumatic diseases. The rheumatology specialty has advanced rapidly as laboratory research and clinical trials continually alter standards of care for patients and increase the number of therapeutic options available for physicians. The course consists of four days of live CME activities, utilizing the following educational formats:

  • Lectures by leading experts in the United States, Canada, and Europe on topics pertaining to their special areas of interest;
  • Curbside consult sessions in which an expert presents difficult clinical scenarios and his or her approach to the problem; and
  • Panel discussions in which a group of experts in a particular disease entertain questions solicited from the audience.

The full range of rheumatic disease is covered every year over the span of this course.
