The ACAAI Fellow-in-Training (FIT) Section is composed of FIT members who are enrolled in ACGME-accredited allergy and immunology fellowship programs.
Who We Are
The Section is led by the FIT Executive Committee that consists of the Senior and Junior FIT Representatives to ACAAI Board of Regents (who serve as chair and vice chair respectively) and up to 12 Regional FIT Representatives throughout the U.S. and Canada. FIT Representatives advocate for the needs of FITs and work with College leadership to make sure that FITs are provided with the tools and resources they need to launch their careers.
What We Do
The FIT Committee disseminates information regarding College activities to the FIT Section, initiates and maintains programs of interest to FITs, provides opportunities for FITs to meet and exchange information at the annual meeting, facilitates FIT involvement in the College’s committee work, and communicates the interests and educational needs of FITs to the ACAAI Board of Regents as well as other resident physician organizations. Review the FIT Section Rules of Order to learn more.
FIT Member BenefitsACAAI fellow-in-training members enjoy many benefits, including free access to the College’s publications and online educational resources. FIT membership offers ample opportunities to get involved with the College through the FIT Committee and other ACAAI initiatives. More than 200 ACAAI FIT members receive scholarships each year to attend the ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting where they gain new insights into specialty, participate in a wide range of educational and social events, and expand their professional networks. In addition, the College recognizes three FIT members for their outstanding research through the Clemens von Pirquet Awards. The College also partners with Resolve, a company providing physicians with professional guidance on employment contracts, including navigating and negotiating salary and benefits. Whether competitive compensation, call schedule, or adequate benefits are at the top of your list, the Resolve team will help you get the terms that matter most. College members receive discounts on Resolve’s services. Learn more.
