2021 AAAAI Virtual Faculty Development Program

Application Due May 31, 2021

This invitation-only program provides a unique opportunity for 15 emerging physicians who are committed to an academic career in allergic diseases to receive individualized mentorship from established faculty.

Invited participants will be asked to provide a brief presentation of planned, ongoing, or recently completed clinical, translational, or basic research during the program. Mentors will lead small group break-outs to discuss the essential aspects of a career in research, including publishing, budgeting, managing a research team, and maintaining a work-life balance. Presentations from mentors will address other essential topics including grantsmanship and funding sources.

The 2021 Virtual Faculty Development Program, to be held online October 1 and 2, 2021, will be accepting applications from early-career allergist/immunologists who meet all eligibility requirements:

  • Senior Fellow-in-training or Junior Faculty
  • Based at an accredited institution in the United States or Canada

Priority will be given to applicants who have not attended previously, though past participants who meet all eligibility requirements may apply.
