Interested in joining the Fellowship Directors' Executive Committee?

The Fellowship Directors' Executive Committee currently facilitates the Grassroots Forum for Fellowship Directors at the APPD Annual Meeting, plans the Forum for Fellowship Directors at PAS, and helps with programming for the APPD Fall Meeting. Assistance from subspecialty colleagues is always welcome for these three events.

Grassroots Forum for Fellowship Directors

The Fellowship Directors' Executive Committee facilitates the Grassroots Forum for Fellowship Directors - a combination town hall meeting and an opportunity for presentations. It takes place each year at the APPD Annual Spring Meeting, where representatives of outside regulatory agencies speak during the session, due to fellowship rules differing from those of residencies.

Additional Resources

Another great resource for Fellowship Program Directors is the Council for Pediatric Subspecialties (CoPS). The CoPS site also provides a list of subspecialty descriptions.
