The leadership of APPD, CoPS, and AMSPDC have been working collaboratively with fellowship leaders, residency leaders, and trainees to optimize the recruitment process for applicants and programs. Through this process, we have sought substantial input including several formative studies, from applicants, program leaders, chairs, and the greater community.
