Recognition as a master of the ACR is one of the highest honors the College bestows. The designation of master is conferred on ACR members, age 65 or older, who have made outstanding contributions to the field of rheumatology through scholarly achievement and/or service to their patients, students and profession. This honor is usually bestowed upon no more than 15 members per year.
