Currently Accepting 2018-19 Applications For  Geoff Carr Lupus Fellowship
Members of Lupus Ontario (formerly known as the Ontario Lupus Association) have established an annual Fellowship in memory of their colleague, the late Geoff Carr. The Fellowship is designed to train a rheumatologist to be an expert in the management of patients with lupus. The Lupus Fellow will follow patients at an accredited lupus clinic, supervise patient care and education, and become involved in clinical research. The stipend attached to the Geoff Carr Lupus Fellowship will be $65,000 Cdn. per annum. Candidates must arrange their own place of training in Ontario.

The successful candidate will likely have completed his/her core training in Internal Medicine or Pediatrics and have completed a minimum of two years in rheumatology.

Awards are made on the recommendation of The Arthritis Society’s Medical Advisory Committee.

Lupus Ontario administers the Fellowship.
