EULAR scientific endorsement for rheumatology courses
and meetings

As well as its own branded educational programme, EULAR invites other courses and scientific meetings in the field of rheumatology to apply for EULAR scientific endorsement.

EULAR views scientific endorsement as an opportunity to positively influence the quality of rheumatology training in Europe, which is in line with our longer-term goals. Quality control associated with EULAR scientific endorsement focuses on the proposed content and faculty as well as on evaluation of these courses or meetings.

Please note the requirements for MSUS courses, should they apply.
