Current members of the Section on Infectious Diseases Executive Committee are not eligible to receive this award. The Section on Infectious Diseases Award for Lifetime Contribution in Infectious Diseases Education is fully funded by dues from the membership of the Section on Infectious Diseases.
A core part of the mission of the Section on Infectious Diseases (SOID) is to promote the education of trainees interested in infectious diseases. To achieve this aim, the SOID offers travel grants annually to residents with an interest in infectious diseases (ID) and/or ID fellows in training whose membership in the national AAP and SOID is current.
The 2021-22 Travel Grant Application process is now closed.
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 specialists with a broad range of infectious diseases expertise to pediatric and family practice programs around the country that may not have or who have limited access to a pediatric infectious diseases specialist. In memory and honor of Dr. S. Michael Marcy’s selfless and unwavering dedication and enormous contributions to the community of pediatric infectious disease practitioners and the educational endeavors of the SOID, the SOID visiting professorship is in his name.
The call for applications for the academic year 2022 – 2023 is now closed.
The Visiting Professor Program is supported by Section funds.
AAP Chapter Grants to Support Infectious Disease Education and Collaboration
Supported by the AAP Section on Infectious Diseases
Through its AAP Chapter Grants to Support Infectious Disease Education and Collaboration program, the Section on Infectious Diseases (SOID) offers the opportunity for AAP chapters to apply for a 1-year grant of up to $2,000 dollars towards the development and integration of infectious disease-focused education into chapter activities.
It is encouraged that the activities supported by this grant program focus on areas of interest to general pediatricians and other care providers with an interest in infectious diseases (eg, medical students, infection preventionists, etc.).
Grantees are chosen by the SOID Executive Committee on the basis of the program’s potential impact consistent with the SOID interest in the care of fetuses, newborn, infants, children, adolescents, and youth adults with infectious conditions; the promotion of prevention of these diseases; and the consistency between the program proposal and the submitted budget.
THE SOID IS NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR 2023-2024.The application deadline is October 6, 2023.
