Patient with rheumatoid arthritis and swelling of the joints.
Identifying rheumatoid arthritis early can be difficult. In general practice, there is often a lack of experience with the inflammatory rheumatic autoimmune disease. A reason for this might be that specialist training in the field of rheumatology is not exactly the first choice for medical students. Yet, prompt treatment is important for good medical care for those affected. Ideally, this will bring the disease to a standstill or at least slow down the progression of the disease. Thus, it is all the more important to win over medical specialists for the topic of rheumatism.
Get More Students Excited About Choosing Rheumatology as Specialty
In Germany, the German Society for Rheumatology (DGRh) started the rheuma2025.de campaign to win over students’ ❤️ and 🧠 for the discipline — not only on Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, but also in real life. Young doctors with diagnostic intuition who think outside the box of their discipline and always keep a cool head and a warm heart when dealing with patients are especially in demand.
Some of them were recently present at the 50th German Rheumatology Congress. From August 31st to September 3rd, Kay G. Hermann from the BerlinCaseViewer team was also to be found at a stand in the Estrel Congress Center on Sonnenallee in Berlin. With our new sponsor AbbVie on board, we were able to make a fresh app addition here at BCV.
