Course Description: The annual NYU Seminar in Advanced Rheumatology is an informative conference for rheumatologists, orthopedists, trainees in the rheumatic diseases and internists with a special interest in rheumatology. It will review and address those areas where recent, solid knowledge in the treatment of rheumatic diseases is available, focusing particularly on the state-of-the-art in rheumatology, at the leading edge between new clinical knowledge and its translation into practice.

Rheumatology is a fast-moving field in which new discoveries are continually being made, and new treatment modalities developed. Because the basic and clinical scientific underpinnings of rheumatologic practice frequently and directly come to impact upon therapy, this course will also explore those areas of new science that are likely to prove important to the near-future management of patients with rheumatic disease.

Lectures and Year-In-Review updates will provide participants with the latest information in arthritis, lupus and other rheumatologic conditions; panel discussions and optional Meet-the-Professor sessions will allow participants to raise questions and participate in dialog with the course instructors and clinical experts.
