USIDNET is proud to support the Clinical Immunology Society's Summer School Program. The mission of CIS Summer School is to train young investigators in an intensive course of study in an informal setting that encourages active participation.
The schools are geared toward fellows in training and junior faculty, with a primary goal of education in the diagnosis, pathogenesis, and treatment of primary immunodeficiency diseases. The secondary goals of the schools 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. These programs encourage student interaction with faculty and thought leaders in immunology in a casual and intimate setting.
The 15th Summer School was held in 2017, and since that event, there have been 513 participants of this program. The majority of attendees were from Allergy Immunology programs, but fellows in Infectious Diseases, Rheumatology, Hematology/Oncology and Gastroenterology have also been accepted.
