Becoming a Fellow of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society

Meritorious individuals who apply for fellowship after seven years of full membership will be advanced to the PIDS Board of Directors for consideration of designation as Fellow of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society*.  In rare circumstances, and at the discretion of the PIDS Board of Directors, an individual may be considered prior to the standard seven-year waiting period as a result of an unusual degree of productivity defined above.

*Full membership does not include those years in training.  To be eligible, you must be out of fellowship training five years or more and a member in good standing for the last seven years.
