The planning committee will review all submissions and select the best cases for presentation during the breakout sessions. The deadline for submission is Thursday, January 31, 2019. Feel free to contact the PIDS Headquarters office (This email address is being protected from spambots.

To ensure HIPAA Privacy Regulations are met, please confirm that the author's program director or ID faculty attending has reviewed the case report prior to uploading the case files to validate that the report complies. The author will be asked to confirm that the case has been reviewed by their program director of ID faculty during the submission process; therefore the author(s) should share the case with this individual and begin the submission process early.
