Applicants should be pediatricians, internists, or scientists committed to the clinical management of patients with primary immunodeficiency diseases. Candidates may have backgrounds in immunology, adult medicine, rheumatology, hematology/oncology, infectious disease, laboratory immunology, or allergy/immunology, among others.

For selected attendees, CIS will cover roundtrip, economy airfare; 3 nights lodging at the conference hotel; and meals for the duration of the program.

Applications will open in late May.



The 2023 Summer School is scheduled to take place in-person in Pompano Beach, Florida, just outside Ft. Lauderdale. The Summer School will feature a mix of case presentations from selected fellows, didactic lectures from faculty, and small group mentoring sessions.



For fellows and junior faculty considering a career in immunology, this is an excellent opportunity to crystallize your knowledge and to further your knowledge around primary immunodeficiencies, the diagnosing of such disorders, and optimal management strategies. The Summer School offers an unparalleled opportunity to interact with leaders in the field and to network with your colleagues, both junior and senior.



The case should have a main discussion point.  This can be a diagnostic surprise and teaching point or a management dilemma suitable for discussion. In some cases, a research project focused on a clinical or translational issue of broad relevance would be acceptable.
