The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research is proud to partner with the World Association of Sarcoidosis and Other Granulomatous Disorders to provide a platform by which institutions may be recognized as maintaining a WASOG and FSR Sarcoidosis Clinic.

This initial application process as a Sarcoidosis Clinic is required in order for clinics to then be certified as WASOG Center of Excellence.

WASOG Sarcoidosis Center of Excellence’ refers to a multidisciplinary team of specialized medical and paramedical professionals with a shared specialized facility that has proven sustainability over years, and provides leadership, best practices, research, support and/or training for sarcoidosis patients and professionals. It should contain sarcoidosis experts in at least two different disciplines.

FSR is proud to announce our first round of top 25 institutions that have achieved Center of Excellence status:
