Executive Committee
The ACR YPS is led by a seven-member executive committee with the shared goal of connecting young physicians and those early in their careers to empower these members to get involved in the ACR. Members of the ACR YPS Executive Committee are the representative voice of over 5,000 ACR members, and communicating their opinions and values on current issues that face the College is imperative.
