5th Annual Pediatric Rheumatology
An Update for Clinicians
Pediatric Rheumatology is one of the newest and smallest pediatric subspecialties. There are fewer than 250 pediatric rheumatologists in the United States, with several states lacking even a single pediatric rheumatologist. Many general pediatricians and adult rheumatologists must, therefore, have sufficient training to diagnose children with rheumatic disease. Promoting increased awareness is essential for treating rheumatic disease earlier in order to minimize damage and improve patient outcomes.
This unique course will focus on closing the gap between clinical experience and practice through expert lectures and will include a panel discussion and question and answer portion. The program will include a ½-day conference followed by an expert panel. The intended audience includes general pediatricians, pediatric subspecialists, adult rheumatologists, as well as trainees including house staff, fellows and medical students.
There is no other course like this being offered in New York State, and few, if any, in the country. It has been well attended in the past, with over 190 attendees. This year’s program includes new topics given by world-renowned experts.
