The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research is proud support  the World Association of Sarcoidosis and Other Granulomatous Disorders’ distinguished Sarcoidosis Centers of Excellence.

Centers of Excellence provide patients collaborative, comprehensive, and expert care all within one location. These Centers have set the standard in sarcoid-specific care.

Through a vigorous application process, FSR and WASOG have screened sarcoidosis clinics for designations as Centers of Excellence. Among the lengthy criteria involved in choosing Centers, clinics and hospitals are scored on a variety of factors including:

  • number of patients (in total and new) seen at the clinic
  • the presence of an established registry & ongoing clinical trials
  • a clinical care team consisting of a comprehensive set of specialist.

Each Center of Excellence maintains a scheduler who accommodates the needs of patients, points them in the right direction, and makes appointments for them with the appropriate physicians. ​
