Objective: To describe the experience of the first OMERACT Emerging Leaders Program (ELP).Methods: A Delphi process identified positive aspects, areas for improvement, and future directions. Core items were defined as essential if they received ≥ 70% ratings.Results: Participants valued relatable/accessible mentors (100%), including an OMERACT Executive mentor (100%), and a support network of peers (90%). Key items for future development were funding support (100%) and developing knowledge about OMERACT processes (90%) and politics (80%).Conclusion: The ELP has the potential to provide targeted training for early career researchers to develop relevant skills for future leadership roles within OMERACT.
