2013 Summer School in Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases
The USIDNET, in collaboration with Clinical Immunology Society (CIS), announces its tenth Summer School in Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases to be held October 3rd- 6th, 2013 in Miami, Florida.
The Summer School is primarily directed at fellows-in-training (within their last two years of training) or junior faculty members. Participants should be pediatricians, internists, or scientists committed to the clinical management of patients with primary immunodeficiency diseases. These candidates may have backgrounds in immunology, infectious diseases, adult medicine, rheumatology, hematology, laboratory immunology, stem cell transplantation, or allergy/immunology.
The primary goal is education on the diagnosis, pathogenesis, and treatment of these complex diseases. The secondary goals are to attract and develop future scientists in academic medicine and to enhance the awareness of clinical immunology and its importance in scientific discoveries and clinical applications. A third goal is to stimulate future collaborations between young investigators in different medical centers and countries, and between young investigators and experienced physician/scientists in the field.
Each attendee will present a case which will be followed by a group discussion of the appropriate management or diagnostic strategies. The faculty members represent specific interests and also present state-of-the-art lectures on their subject of interest. The Summer School provides an opportunity for fellows and junior faculty to gain important expertise before launching their own careers.
The Summer School will be residential in character, and held in an informal location that can attract applicants from North, Central and South America. As in the past we will invite ten faculty members and select 30-32 young participants to attend. The language of the School will be in English.
The Summer School is primarily directed at fellows-in-training (within their last two years of training) or junior faculty members.
