Welcome to our educational modules for Pediatric Transplant Infectious Diseases, developed in collaboration with the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society and the American Society for Transplantation. We recognized that this specialized area of pediatric ID care is a rapidly changing and growing practice area, with few resources to help us in management. The modules are intended to help pediatric ID fellows and faculty in their understanding of infectious disease related complications in these patients.
We are indebted to a large group of authors in the US and Canada for helping us put together these modules, which will be released in stages. With this staged introduction, we very much appreciate completion of the brief surveys at the end of each module, so that we can make appropriate modifications for future iterations.
