Resources for Fellows

The Training Programs Committee serves to inform and support training program directors on issues such as accreditation, fellowship support, and manpower; enhances standards for fellowship training, and communicates with members on issues and trends related to re-certification of Pediatric Infectious Diseases subspecialists and recruitment of fellows to our subspecialty.

On behalf of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society, the Training Programs Committee is pleased to provide an online Directory of Pediatric Infectious Disease Training Programs in the United States and Canada as a helpful reference for individuals considering fellowship training in pediatric infectious disease.

Use the tool bar to find the latest information on ERAS, educational links, online courses, and other resources pertaining to pediatric infectious diseases fellowship training, including a Fellows Survival Guide, that was designed to guide you through your fellowship from start to finish.
