How do I register as a nonmember with student/resident/fellow-in-training status?

This category includes physicians enrolled in or who have completed a training program in rheumatology or a related field within the past year, individuals enrolled in a residency program who are interested in rheumatology as a subspecialty, students enrolled in a graduate-level educational program in medicine or a related field, or students enrolled in a health professional program leading to a baccalaureate or graduate degree.

Note: If your student/resident ID does not have an expiration date on it, you may send it along with a copy of your transcript or letter of acceptance from your educational institution or resident program. Include a dated letter from your institution on letterhead, signed by your program director or faculty advisor, showing that you are currently enrolled as a student, employed as a resident, or have a fellowship.

To register as a student, resident, or fellow in training:

Step One: Email ACR Convergence Registration Support stating for which nonmember category you are applying (i.e., student, resident, or fellow in training), and attach your proof of status. If approved, you will receive an email with an invitation code.

Step Two: Visit the ACR Convergence Registration Website and enter the invitation code on the event dashboard during the registration process. Proceed through the remaining registration pages and the correct fees will display. Upon completing your registration and payment, you will immediately receive confirmation of your registration. Please review the confirmation for accuracy.
