APPD has numerous resources available by position. Learn how you can get involved today.

The APPD Virtual Cafés provide an opportunity for members to come together and learn from one another.

Other days are sponsored by an Executive Committee to highlight information and discussion important to their member section.

The leadership of APPD, COMSEP, CoPS, AMSPDC, @FuturePedsRes, and Next Gen Pediatricians have been working collaboratively with Graduate Medical Education (GME) leaders, learners and Pediatrics Chairs to improve our residency and fellowship recruitment processes.
