New President

Dr. Marcos Paulino Huertas, Chief of the Rheumatology Service of the Hospital General Universitario de Ciudad Real, is the new president of Spanish Rheumatology Society (SER in spanish), and will hold this position from May 2024 to May 2026.

The new president of the SER has set as his priority objectives “to integrate new talents, young and not so young, but less common, together with consolidated rheumatologists for the benefit of all; as well as to work for the dignity and independence of Rheumatology, defending the interests of the specialty in the face of the regional governments, management, pharmacies, insurance companies, etc., and to take care of the members, in a tangible way, in complicated life situations”.

Strengthening the SER at an institutional and social level so that it becomes a priority specialty for the authorities and the general population is also fundamental,” says Dr. Paulino. Likewise, he adds, “we are going to continue working to maintain the excellent scientific level of the specialists, in addition to rationalizing the offer and consolidating research and teaching in rheumatology. This scientific society will be opened up to new ideas and talents, and we are going to invest decisively in increasing the visibility of Rheumatology, while at the same time we are also going to reinforce our actions with the aim of gaining weight and greater presence at an international level”.

A great partner

OAFI congratulates and welcomes this great rheumatologist, who has been elected president for the next term. The SER, a first class medical and scientific society, is one of the best partners of our foundation to continue working with the best, for research, diagnosis and treatment of patients, so that they can enjoy a good quality of life.
