OARSI’s Early Career Investigator Committee typically organizes four World Congress events. At the Pre-Congress Workshop, Early Career Investigators can explore different research areas and lessons learned by more senior scientists. The Mentoring Reception enables Early Career Investigators to pick a topic at Congress registration and be mentored by a senior scientist during the Congress. The Committee also organizes a lunch workshop promoting professional development.
In addition, the highest rated Early Career Investigator abstracts are presented during a special plenary session.
