Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing (but don’t let these limit your thinking).

Consider a time when you:
. Diagnosed a rheumatologic disease that presented in an atypical manner
. Made a very early diagnosis based on minimal symptoms that proved correct
. Recommended therapy that changed the likely course of the disease
. Ordered tests that weren’t in the “guidelines” that proved pivotal to the outcome
. Learned a key lesson from a patient that made you a better clinician
