Excellence in Rheumatology (EiR) is an exciting conference on rheumatology with a unique clinical focus. EiR recruits outstanding international contributors to present and discuss cutting edge scientific findings as they relate to clinical practice. Our aim is to provide rheumatologists and related healthcare professionals with developing scientific knowledge that can be applied in everyday clinical practice. Ultimately, we aspire to become leaders of state of the art guidance on selected topics. Conference attendance is capped at 1.500 delegates to ensure maximum interaction and networking.
EiR was launched after having identified a number of characteristics not catered for by current rheumatology conferences
