It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the second Middle East Rheumatology Conference hosted by GCC Association of Immunology and Rheumatology, to be held at Intercontinental Hotel, Dubai, United Arab Emirates on 09-11 December 2022.

Building on the success of the first edition, we are certain that the Middle East Rheumatology Conference has now cemented its place as a rewarding scientific experience to our community.

We have planned a three-day comprehensive program with high-level scientific content consisting of interactive educational sessions, workshops, symposiums, abstract presentations and more. This edition is once again taking place in a hybrid format, offering many exciting possibilities to grow your network, transfer knowledge and explore the latest industry developments.

Rheumatological competence relies on scientific knowledge covering the entire field of the rheumatology specialty and the other specialties. Our mission is to expand rheumatology knowledge among rheumatologists, improve early rheumatic cases diagnosis and referral, enhance rheumatology knowledge across other specialties, augment the standard of health care, expand research skills and create scientific evidence, and enable rheumatology experts’ social exchange.

The Middle East Rheumatology Conference aims at providing comprehensive and intensive scientific sessions in the field of Rheumatology and in the other related medical specialties. International, regional, and national experts from different health and academic institutes will work together to contribute their knowledge, promote scientific development, and expand health care excellence.
