Dr. S. Michael Marcy Visiting Professor Program
Call for Applications 2019-20
The American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Infectious Diseases (SOID) is dedicated to ensuring that children receive the highest quality of care to prevent and treat infectious diseases and is committed to providing a number of educational forums to share best practices, present new research, and stimulate meaningful dialogue among pediatric health care providers. In accord with this mission, the SOID is proud to offer a Visiting Professor Program. This program has been designed to bring nationally and internationally known pediatric infectious diseases (PID) specialists to pediatric and family practice programs around the country that may not have or who have limited access to a pediatric ID specialist. In memory and honor of Dr. S. Michael Marcy’s selfless and unwavering dedication and enormous contributions to PID and the educational endeavors of the SOID, the SOID visiting professorship is in his name.
The SOID is pleased to accept applications for its Visiting Professor Program for the academic year 2019 - 2020. The Visiting Professor Program provides support for a pediatric infectious diseases physician to visit an institution for one to two days. The Visiting Professor provides lectures and discusses clinical problems that may enhance the infectious diseases training of health care providers including but not limited to attending medical and surgical staff, faculty, fellows-in-training, residents, etc. The SOID will oversee the program which provides the Visiting Professor with an honorarium and reimbursement for travel, lodging, and meal expenses. The applications will be reviewed by the Section Executive Committee and each institution will be notified of the review outcome. The successful applicant program may then schedule the visit with the visiting professor for any time between July 1, 2019 – May 30, 2020.
