Dear Friends,

I thank the members of Indian Rheumatology Association for providing me an opportunity to serve the IRA. Indian Rheumatology Association is a vibrant association meant to improve Rheumatology manpower, delivery of health care services to patients and research into rheumatic diseases.

Towards this goal of improving Rheumatology manpower we propose to conduct Continuing Medical Education programs in medical colleges across all parts of country (at least 2 in each year in North, South, East and West India) so that the disparity across India can be bridged. For fellows in training in sub-speciality a 3 days fellows retreat is planned every year to teach them nuances of research
