The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS) is proud to introduce meetID. This program intends to acquaint premedical/medical students and residents with pediatric ID through a program that is mentored, engaging, educational, and trainee focused.
The meetID program provides a broad overview of pediatric infectious diseases (PID), career exploration in PID, support and resources needed to excel in science and medicine, and an opportunity to network with other trainees, faculty, and PIDS leadership. Additionally, trainees will have an opportunity to re-engage virtually throughout the year with various PID leaders, who will serve as mentors that can provide career guidance and support.
