The Visiting Immunology Scholars Program (VISP) is a short-term training program that allows medical students, residents, and fellows the opportunity to spend one to two weeks at a medical center with an active research program in primary immunodeficiency diseases (PI).
This provides the opportunity for awardees to gain firsthand experience in patient evaluation, treatment, and pertinent laboratory techniques. At the end of each visit, the awardees submit an evaluation of their experience at the visit site. This allows USIDNET to document program success, track knowledge gained by the awardees, and collect suggestions. This is a valuable learning opportunity for interested applicants to help increase their knowledge of clinical diagnoses and treatments of PI, as well as innovative research.
