Discover a Community Program

Our Discover a Community In-Need program gives the next generation of rheumatologists an opportunity to explore a community in-need and scope out what its like to work and live there.

Participants are matched with a nearby rheumatologist who can answer questions about the area, and have the option to visit the community with eligible travel expenses covered without obligation by the ORA.
