The ACR is pleased to again collaborate with the Indian Rheumatology Association (IRA) and PANLAR to offer International Visiting Fellows Exchange Programs. 

These programs support scientific collaboration between members of the ACR, IRA, and PANLAR, and junior rheumatologists representing each of those organizations. Each award recipient will participate in a four-week exchange in a foreign country and the ACR’s 2017 Annual Meeting in San Diego, California, USA. The 2017 exchange program will award a total of four (4) applicants with observerships: one fellow from IRA and one from PANLAR will be hosted at academic institutions in the US, and two ACR fellows will travel to India and Argentina for observerships at academic institutions in those countries.
