Chairman's Welcome

Dear Colleagues,

Since the foundation of the GCC Association of Immunology and Rheumatology in 2021, our association has been recognized as a respected and reputable non-profit organization that has advanced rheumatology knowledge and developed competencies among healthcare professionals which has improved the health of people with rheumatic and related diseases.

Among our educational activities, the Middle East Rheumatology Conference (MRC) represents the flagship of our association, providing a rewarding scientific experience to our community. The MRC consists of an extensive work of dedicated experts from different health and academic institutions from across the Gulf countries, working towards a high-level scientific excellence in clinical and basic science.

Our three-day comprehensive program presents the latest updates in rheumatic and related diseases, while presenting scientific breakthroughs and treatment scenarios, through keynote lectures and plenary sessions. This year, we are building on the success of previous editions by keeping the practical aspects of our specialty in specific workshop discussions and interactive case presentations throughout the conference.

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. We are excited to invite International, regional, and national experts to present the most prestigious and scientific rewarding conference in rheumatology in the GCC.

Strive to be your best and join us in our vision of providing innovation and knowledge that optimizes the highest quality and patient care for people living with rheumatic diseases.
