Future Leaders in RheumaTology (FLIRT) is a mentorship program designed for rheumatologists at an early career stage who are likely to become leaders in research and/or education and/or advocacy in Canada.
This program seeks to identify and promote leadership in rheumatologists early in their career (within 5 years post fellowship in rheumatology or paediatric rheumatology). It is comprised of a variety of initiatives identified via a needs assessment conducted with participants, and a collaboration with Canadian mentors and expert advisors. It is designed for future leaders in academic and community practice.
- Provide aspiring young Canadian rheumatologists with the opportunity to participate in a needs-based, high-quality, innovative, multi-faceted 2-year program
- Build personal and professional contacts with thought leaders and peers
- Develop insights into career building, publications, promotion and advocacy
The 2020-2022 Future Leaders in RheumaTology Program is supported by Pfizer Canada. The Canadian Rheumatology Association would like to recognize and thank this sponsor for their generous support.
