The Vasculitis Foundation hosts international biennial and regional conferences for patients, their families, friends and medical professionals. The conferences feature recognized vasculitis experts presenting the most current information on diagnosis, treatment and research efforts.
The Vasculitis Clinical Research Consortium-Vasculitis Foundation Fellowship is a mentored training program of up to two years for physician-investigators who have a strong interest in vasculitis and wish to pursue a period of specialized training with an emphasis on clinical and/or translational patient-oriented clinical investigation.
The trainee will undertake the Fellowship between 2014-2019 at a VCRC-affiliated site in North America that has an established distinct clinical and research program in vasculitis and availability of senior faculty mentors.
"The Vasculitis Foundation is committed to creating greater awareness and interest in vasculitis," said Joyce Kullman, executive director of the VF. "We hope that the VCRC-VF Fellowship will encourage medical professionals to pursue careers in patient care and research linked to vasculitis."
