Improving The Diagnosis and Care for Patients with Lupus

The Teaching Fellows in Lupus Project

The Teaching Fellows in Lupus Project (TFLP) is a project of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) that aims to change the behavior of non-rheumatology providers in connection with suspecting lupus and making appropriate referrals. It achieves this through rheumatology fellows-led education sessions that increase providers’ ability to: 

Rheumatology fellows, under the direction of a Program Director, schedule sessions within their community to educate MDs, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants on lupus awareness and diagnostics. These fellows develop and fine tune their presentation and facilitation skills while participating in this project, which will be carried with them throughout their professional careers as educators and advocates in Public Health. In 2023, ACR is working with nine programs across the nation.
