The EULAR Online Course on Rheumatic Diseases is an electronic form of continuous medical education in rheumatology. The course is managed by a scientific course committee responsible for controlling the structure and content of the course and for ensuring regular quality control and advancement.


The full version of the course covers the entire field of rheumatology and consists of 50 illustrated modules (of which some are optional), each one covering a specific topic. Each module corresponds to approximately 5 - 8 hours of study for the student, totaling around 210 - 336 hours of educational training. The total number of modules to be completed is 42.


The expected learning time per week is calculated around 2 1/2 hours but very flexible for the learners who can enter the learning system at any time and have available free of charge an extra year if needed.


The course operates through the web for the duration of two years with an automatic extension of one year in case the modules are not completed after 2 years or if the exam is failed once. It will finish with an online exam and upon passing, with a EULAR Certificate.


Knowledge and skills are targeted to suit a level of knowledge appropriate for the final years of training as a rheumatologist. The online course was developed with a substantial grant from EULAR and is continuously highly subsidized by EULAR, so that the entire course can be offered at the lowest price possible. 


Module structure and final exam

Each online module deals with one particular topic and contains:

  • A main text on the module top with a set of clear learning outcomes
  • Generally, two in-depth discussions expanding on relevant clinical problems with an evidence-based discussion
  • Two interactive typical clinical cases with appropriate multiple-choice questions and immediate feedback
  • A self-assessment section addresses core aspects of the module and needs to be finished (3 attempts are granted) before the next module can be started


The final examination will assess a sample of the learning outcomes from the whole course (90 questions, the chosen optional modules are NOT tested) which will last for 90 minutes. The examination is run annually at a given date and time period for which participants are notified well in advance. Learners should keep in mind that this course is a 2 years course with an additional year granted if required. The first opportunity to take the exam will, therefore, be in October of the 2nd year if all modules are properly completed.

This EULAR online course on Imaging covers 12 modules, followed by an examination in October each year. The content is based on the EULAR guidelines for the use of imaging (conventional radiographs (CR), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in chronic inflammatory rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs). The learner level is aimed primarily at Section Residents and Fellows in Training as well as Rheumatologists. It aims to educate rheumatologists and future rheumatologists on how to interpret imaging examinations in chronic inflammatory RMDs and to use the imaging results to guide their daily treatment.


The expected learning time per week is calculated around 2 1/2 hours but very flexible for the learners who can enter the learning system at any time and have available free of charge an extra year if needed.


The course consists of 3 main topics (based on the three modalities CR, CT, and MRI),  related to different main conditions (RA, PsA, axSpA, and OA). Each of the modules has a review/main text, including images and other interactive features, as well as learning objectives, a summary, and key references.


In addition, the leaners will find in-depth discussions about differences and similarities of the diagnoses, based on imaging examples, typical clinical cases (including self-assessment), dealing with the role of imaging in diagnosis and treatment of each condition. At the end of each module, there is a self-assessment.


The learner can take this online final examination, after finishing all modules, once a year (a second year is automatically added free of charge if the exam is not passed or if not all modules are completed within the first year). Passing the online examination results in a EULAR certificate of completion of the EULAR Online Course on Imaging in RMDs.


The online course was developed with a substantial grant from EULAR and is continuously highly subsidised by EULAR, so that the entire course can be offered at the lowest price possible.

  • Two interactive typical clinical cases with appropriate multiple-choice questions and immediate feedback
  • A self assessment section addresses core aspects of the module and needs to be completed (3 attempts are granted) before the next module can be started.


The final examination will assess a sample of the learning outcomes from the whole course (45 questions) within 45 minutes. The examination is run annually at a given date and time period for which participants are notified well in advance. All learners are free to choose in which year they would like to take the examination keeping in mind that it is a 1 year course with an additional 2nd year added only if required.


Highly recommended: ALL learners of this online course are welcome to register to the EULAR Advanced Hands-On Imaging Workshop, a practical case-based event prior to the EULAR 2019 Congress in Amsterdam. Participants will be able to apply the knowledge gained from the online course to real-life cases collected from daily practice. Registration for this live event will start soon.

The EULAR Online Introductory Ultrasound Course is an electronic form of continuous medical education in rheumatology.


The course is run entirely through the web, designed for approx. 7 months of training. The course will cover 7 modules, starting each September and finishing in April (time available to study is shortened if you start after September), followed by a final online examination. Upon passing the examination a EULAR certificate will be issued. If the course is not completed or the exam failed after the first year, the course will automatically extend for one more year without charge.


The expected learning time per week is calculated around 2 1/2 hours but very flexible for the learners who can enter the learning system at any time and have available free of charge an extra year if needed.


It is our objective to offer theoretical basic skills on musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) showing different joint sites, in healthy subjects and in rheumatic diseases, using a wide variety of images and video clips. The course is being updated on a regular basis.


Knowledge and skills are targeted to the level felt to be appropriate for European rheumatologists who would like to acquire a basic theoretical knowledge on MSUS. Successful participants of this course will be able to continue their training by signing up for one of the yearly offered EULAR MSUS live courses (basic, intermediate and advanced) and eventually achieve the EULAR competency levels 1 and 2. (See competency procedures below as PDF) Local MSUS courses with EULAR endorsement can also be accepted for the competency process.

The EULAR Online Course for Health Professionals is aimed at health professionals in rheumatology (HPRs, other than physicians) who play an important role in the management of rheumatic conditions: e.g. nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and psychologists.


The course consists of a total of eight modules, four disease-specific modules (one on RA, one on OA, one on Fibromyalgia and one on regional musculoskeletal pain syndromes) and 4 generic modules (assessment and evaluation; interventions; psychosocial approaches and evidence-based practice). Care is given to integrate the multi disciplinary perspective of the treatment of rheumatic diseases.


The duration of the course is approx. nine months with a free of charge extension of a second year if the modules are not completed or the exam not passed. A final examination is offered once a year at a set day and time frame (advised well in time) and a EULAR certificate is issued upon passing the exam.


The expected learning time per week is calculated around 2 1/2 hours but very flexible for the learners who can enter the learning system at any time and have available free of charge an extra year if needed.


The EULAR online course for HPRs was granted credits in the Netherlands by the accreditation committees of the following health professional disciplines: Physical Therapists (60 credits), Nurses (64 credits), Nurse Practitioners (50 credits) and Occupational Therapists, Exercise Therapists and Podiatrists (40 credits).


Endorsed by Royal Dutch Society for Physical Therapy (KNGF) for 3 years
