Monday, October 19, 2020
1:00 – 6:30 pm Eastern (12 – 5:30 pm Central; 10 am – 3:30 pm Pacific)

The Pediatric Fellows’ Day program, organized by the PIDS Training Programs Committee, is designed for pediatric fellows and residents, as well as academicians, who wish to explore various career paths in pediatric infectious diseases, identify common and uncommon infections in children, and understand issues related to the effective transitioning from fellowship to faculty positions. At the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to:

  • discuss challenging infectious disease cases and approaches to patient management
  • summarize career opportunities and pathways to achieve professional goals
  • recognize best practices for developing your potential mission/vision/values statements and negotiating during a job search
