Residents and medical students are invited to socialize with ACR Board of Directors members, FIT Subcommittee members/representatives, program directors, community and private practice representatives, and researchers and explore various types of career choices.
ACR Convergence Networking Lounges are physical spaces where clinicians, researchers, educators, and professionals can connect, share ideas, collaborate, and engage in meaningful conversations. The lounges provide an environment conducive to fostering intellectual exchange and building professional relationships within the rheumatology community, as well as encouraging informal interactions through unstructured conversations, enabling the exchange of insights, opinions, and collaboration. Whether you are seeking career advice, mentorship, or looking to hire, the lounge is fertile ground for personal and professional growth.
The lounges will host a variety of networking events based on professional interests. These events enable you to connect with like-minded individuals and expand your network within your specific areas of interest. You can also use the lounges as a sounding board for your ideas or to seek input on your projects. The diverse perspectives present can spark innovation and provide constructive feedback that you might not find within your immediate circle.
