  • My goal is to perform cutting-edge clinical and basic science research and advance the highest standards of practice.
  • I am a specialist and my academic merit and progress warrant participation in the trainee audience at this important congress.


How will I benefit from APLAR 2015? 

  • I will stay current on the research, knowledge and experience of over 1,000 delegates attending APLAR 2015.
  • My training will take a giant leap forward throughout a wide-ranging four-day scientific programme.
  • I will be among the first to learn of all the significant new developments and scientific advancements in the field of rheumatology.
  • The multidisciplinary approach of the congress will open my mind to all the connections in science and medicine.

  • What I take away from the congress will vastly improve my skills in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.
  • I deserve every opportunity to prepare myself not only to make an impact on the future of rheumatology, but to advance it and be the best that I can be.
