EULAR courses are conceived and developed under the supervision of the EULAR Standing Committee on Education and Training. They are organised by the EULAR Secretariat or, occasionally, by an external agency or a university institute. EULAR courses are independent branded products and as such fully financed by EULAR and the course participants. They are subject to specific criteria and guidelines.

In view of its educational goals, EULAR is committed to keeping registration fees for participants as low as possible. For participants in financial need, EULAR provides a number of course bursaries on application.

EULAR has long been a committed partner in the field of training and education in rheumatology. It is the objective of EULAR to make a targeted contribution to training and further education of young rheumatologists and health professionals, complementing the standard range of opportunities provided by universities, hospitals and other institutions.

To this end, EULAR offers a limited number of own branded courses, and in addition grants "EULAR scientific endorsement" as a mark of scientific quality to selected courses and meetings run by established providers in Europe.
