Application for APLAR Center of Excellence is open from 5 April 2023 to 31 May 2023.
The Asia Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology (APLAR) is pleased to invite the region’s top level centers in rheumatology to be part of its network of Centers of Excellence. APLAR applies a rigorous selection process and will award selected centers/institutions in the region that demonstrate high standards in clinical, educational and research skills. Each institution may achieve this goal through various approaches, based on the context and the needs of the community that it serves. As not all institutions focus on all three areas, application for specific certification (e.g. Center of Excellence for Research) is also encouraged.
Through this certification programme, APLAR hopes to develop a network of ‘Best in class’ reference centers among regional institutions to support and train rheumatology physicians in implementing the best research into clinical practice, in order to improve care for a vast number of patients.
