The Laurentian Conference of Rheumatology (LCR)

The Laurentian Conference of Rheumatology constitutes a forum of great interest to the rheumatology community of Quebec and surrounding areas. The program will spotlight a variety of topics pertinent to the practice of rheumatology. Our nationally and internationally renowned guest speakers will share their knowledge and expertise with our audience.

Additionally, there will be presentations of original research work by our own clinical and basic researchers. These, along with clinical case presentations and discussions, cover a wide range of topics of interest to patients who suffer from rheumatic diseases, and to the rheumatologists and researchers who work in the field.

The conference is an opportunity to meet and interact with colleagues and honour those who have had a particular impact on the local, and international rheumatology community.


To bring together researchers, clinicians, students, residents, regional and international experts in a convivial atmosphere in order to exchange the latest news pertaining to their professional activities.


The program consists of lectures and symposia, presentations and discussions of clinical cases, clinical research and fundamental rheumatology.


The objectives of the Laurentian Conference of Rheumatology change each year, allowing speakers to present information which is relevant today. At the end of the conference, the general objectives include improving the participants’ ability to:

  • Identify, assess and treat rheumatic diseases.
  • Understand the process of clinical research studies and interpret their results.
  • Understand the nature and results of their peers’ research.
